Outercurve Foundation announced acceptance of GADS/OS project into DLSI Gallery

by ronfluegge 20. September 2011 16:02

The Outercurve Foundation today announced the acceptance of the GADS open source (GADS/OS) project into the Data, Language and System Interoperability (DLSI) Gallery. (Gallery Sponsor: Microsoft Corporation) 

The GADS/OS project is the fifth project contributed to the gallery. The project was contributed by the GADS Open Source Project, an independent community of power generating plant engineers and software developers. The community’s mission is to promote openness, innovation and opportunity for collecting, analyzing, and reporting plant operating and performance data as required by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC.)

“With its broad user base, GADS/OS is a significant, proven project used by generating companies to analyze and manage data to comply with mandatory GADS reporting to NERC and the various ISOs,” said Paula Hunter, Executive Director, Outercurve Foundation. “We are fortunate to add the GADS/OS project to the Data, Language and Systems Interoperability Gallery. The GADS/OS project gives electric generating companies the open source tools needed to improve and report on operational performance.”

The Outercurve Foundation has three galleries and 15 projects. Galleries include the ASP.NET Open Source Gallery, the Research Accelerators Gallery and the Data, Language and System Interoperability Gallery.

For more information on the GADS/OS project or the Data, Language and System Interoperability Gallery or the Outercurve Foundation please visit http://www.Outercurve.org .

Power plant operating data included in open source software

by ronfluegge 20. September 2011 09:58

The Outercurve Foundation accepted the generating availability data system open source (GADS/OS) project into the Data, Language and System Inoperability Gallery.

GADS/OS allows electric generating companies to collect and report validated performance data and event data, including outage, de-rating, non-curtailing and reserve shutdown events, in standard formats as required by the North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) and all major independent system operators.

HBS Solomon Associates developed the project and sold it as GADS NxL from 2004 through March 2011. Solomon published the source code inApril 2011. The code is being used to collect and analyze data from such companies as the Tennessee Valley Authority, Calpine (NYSE: CPN), Westar Energy (NYSE: WR) and Luminant. The New York ISO and the ISO New England also use the code base.

Generator owners in North America will be required to report performance data through NERC’s GADS beginning Jan. 1, 2012.

The GADS Open Source Project, an independent community of power generating plant engineers and software developers, contributed the project.
