Modifications to Section 1600 Data Request for Generating Availability Data System (GADS)

In accordance with NERC’s Rule of Procedure, Section 1600 Data Requests must include a 45-day public comment period. NERC is seeking to update the GADS Section 1600 data request to add value by expanding GADS reporting to include:

  • Solar (new): 
    • Inventory/configuration, event reporting, and performance data 
    • Inventory/configuration of connected energy storage and performance data
  • GADS Wind extensions: 
    • Event reporting and connected energy storage
    • Changes to configuration data to support event reporting, and 
    • Expansion of mandatory data reporting fields
  • Conventional GADS extensions:
    • Unit design data that is comparable to the types of information being collected for wind and solar 
    • Contributing Operating Conditions Code

The Reliability and Security Technical Committee reviewed the proposed modifications to the GADS Section 1600 Data Request and approved a 45-day posting for industry comment. Comments should be provided via email by 8:00 p.m. Eastern on July 31, 2021, using the comment form at the link below.
