Tracks and manages time series data types, such as load, imbalance, contract, etc., and tracks a meter’s data sources to generate an official profile based on the best available data. EAS’s validation engine validates meter data across profiles or intervals to manage data quality issues and provides an interface to the ISO markets for MDMA function.
MCG Energy’s Energy Accounting System (EAS)
In addition to tracking and management of a variety of time series data types, MCG Energy’s EAS Pyramid enables the energy accountant to define multiple levels of rollup accounts for visualizing various calculations (load calculations, imbalance calculations, contract calculations, etc.) through drill-down functionality.
EAS tracks multiple data sources for a single meter. These different sources can be ranked in order to generate an official profile based on the best available data for that interval. Tolerance checking allows the system to flag suspect values while still accepting the data from the source. Multiple levels of multipliers can be used to flip signs on incoming data, or to apply loss factors. The system also supports multiple types of rounding methods such as round, round up, round down, truncate, or truncate and carry, which can be set on a meter by meter basis.
