TADS efforts began in 2006 with the formation of the TADS Task Force under the NERC Planning Committee. This task force designed TADS and the associated processes for collecting TADS data. On June 30, 2009, the task force issued its first reports for data collected in 2008. On July 1, 2009, the task force was retired and replaced with the TADS Working Group. This change recognized the ongoing design and oversight of TADS that is more appropriately assigned to a working group than a task force. NERC uses the information to develop transmission metrics that analyze outage frequency, duration, causes, and many other factors related to transmission outages.
While TADS is not intended to provide determinative performance measures, it is used to quantify certain performance aspects. In addition to collecting simple transmission equipment availability, TADS will collect detailed information about individual outage events that, when analyzed at the regional and NERC level, will provide data that may be used to improve reliability.
