For years California ISO used the PI Universal Data Server to measure the quantity of electricity produced by California generators. Now, thanks to the latest innovations of PI, the ISO can now measure the quality of electricity produced by California generators. Over the past 6 months the ISO has developed tools, using PI ACE, to measure quality from data collected in the PI Universal Data Server. The ISO’s tools calculate the expected generation, unit deviation, and unit performance statistics. The tools were implemented to calculate results even when servers fail. Our presentation will focus on the PI ACE implementation and calculation strategy.
