2012 Grid Protection Alliance (GPA) Tutorial and User's Forum
GPA is pleased to invite you to participate in (1) a full-day Technical Tutorial on developing the code neccessary to extend GPA products and/or (2) the User’s Forum for GPA’s open source projects, including the Open Time Series Framework (openTSF), Open Phasor Data Concentrator (openPDC), and Open Phasor Gateway (openPG), to be held on August 21 and 22, 2012, at NERC’s Atlanta Offices.
The GPA Technical Tutorial on August 21 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., is a deep dive into GPA open source libraries and products and is intended for C# developers looking to deploy and/or enhance them. Participating in this session is a good way to learn more about the openTSF. The openTSF can be used to process and manage streaming of time-stamped data through a collection of configurable adapter components. Developers will gain a working knowledge of the framework, which will enable them to extend existing modules or develop new modules to add to open libraries.
The GPA User's Forum on August 22 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., provides an opportunity for GPA product users to share implementation examples with one another. This session will educate those that are new to GPA open source projects, inform developers about new software components, and provide insight from the industry on the practical application of the openTSF, openPDC, and openPG. Input collected during the GPA User’s Forum will be used to help prioritize GPA’s development work in 2013.
