This paper introduces a visual component aggregation method. This method aggregates multiple function blocks to generate new function block or component, and supports aggregation between multiple components. Based on this method, a unified visual development system is implemented. The visual development system supports a device research and development process combining visual programming and configuration technology, provides the visual reuse function for the research and development of relay protection device and improves the efficiency of visual programming and configuration.
