We have just posted to the websites GADS Open Source Version

This is GADS Open Source Version of the Windows UI that has been updated to address some minor issues such as:
1. increased the maximum allowed capacity from 1200 MW to 1500 MW (approved by NERC),
2. a calc bug when an NC event's GAC/NAC is greater than an overlapping derating event's GAC/NAC when they have the same start date/time,
3. unhandled exception when the Joint ownership net generation is null (missing) when running calcs,
4. Inactive Hours on Performance record not being reset when certain event types were revised, and
5. modified error message text for Amp Code 84 for U1 events.

Unless these items apply to your situation, there is no requirement to install this update.

The full installation and source code can be found at

Updates to specific modules can be found at

Except for bug fixes, the next major release is currently scheduled for November 2011 to follow the NERC updates in October 2011.

Solomon Launches GADS NxL(TM) Portal at ISO New England

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 17, 2005--ISO-New England unveiled Solomon Associates' GADS NxL(TM) Portal to its members last week. The Portal facilitates the collection of Generating Availability Data System (GADS) information by the ISO, including unit performance, reliability, availability, and maintainability data. ISO-New England can now readily upload and automatically process GADS data that generating companies are required to report to the ISO.

Based on Solomon's widely successful GADS NxL software for end users, the Portal conforms to ANSI/IEEE Standard 762, and ISO-New England and North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) data reporting definitions and analysis methodologies. GADS NxL offers one of the most accurate, reliable, and powerful means of entering, reporting, and analyzing performance data for power generating companies -- and that power is now brought to the ISO. Originally developed by NERC as a defined set of performance and event standards, GADS has been accepted across the globe as the most rigorous of standards.
