New Web-Based Data System Helps Mandatory Collection Efforts
ATLANTA – The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) launched a new web-based data collection system that collects information for measuring and monitoring the contributions of electric power plants to the reliability of the bulk power system. NERC has collected electric generating unit operational data from the industry using the Generating Availability Data System (GADS) since 1982. To increase the value of the information provided on power plant reliability, in August 2011 NERC’s Board of Trustees broadened GADS participation to all North American conventional power plants.
