work flow needed for plant operations.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
Accounting, Tariff Management, Operating codes etc for a generating plant
will vary from region to region with respect to the market structure in which
the plant is operating. This is mostly governed by a set of regulations,
which are framed by corresponding regulatory bodies. Since regulations
may vary over a period of time with amendments, enhancements and new
notifications, it is highly challenging to keep your accounting intact and also
ensure compliance to regulations governing grid operations.
ELTRIX has a rule management system which helps to keep the regulatory
part of the logic independent of any software code so that any change in
regulations does not require a new version of ELTRIX software to support
the same. The regulation linked logics are built into ELTRIX as rules and
Workflow of DC Calculation
rule sets using the Rule Governor, and executed within the Rule execution
engine as part of the Runtime Server. Rules can be defined by using
intuitive graphics and plain English verbs understood by a domain expert.

BUSINESS & OPERATIONAL PROCESSES
ELTRIX Engineering Editor provides a work flow modeling interface which
helps in implementing various business & operational processes. This
enables automating lot of day to day activities in the generation control room
as well as business & operational interactions needed within the generation
company. Also it enables user interactions, validation and approvals, event
notifications and service job initiations. The work flow is executed in the
work flow engine which is a part of ELTRIX Runtime Server. A Generation
Management system can have workflows associated with interactions with
ISO’s and LDC’s, Power Exchanges, Business systems like ERP, Billing,
and Asset Management, etc.
