Control Area Scheduling System
MCG's Control Area Scheduling System is a fully featured interchange and transmission scheduling system that integrated MCG Tagging and OASIS interfaces to automatically create, categorize, and track interchange and transmission schedules for reliability entities. The system provides multiple levels of checkouts (preschedule, post hour, midnight, after the fact, etc) for schedules and actuals, calculates and tracks inadvertent, and matches schedules against limits for tag validation and curtailment management.
The system is able to handle multiple wheeling tags, detect skip scheduling, validate tag physical paths, account for horizontal and vertical transmission stacking, and track ramping information for end of hour and mid hour ramp changes. The system also makes use of various types of application interfaces such as EIDE to send and receive schedules and actuals between internal systems.
