Enhanced Generator Run Reports

The Generator Run Report, operational at a number of industrial sites to facilitate compliance to state-level regulations, has been enhanced to list total run-time hours by run typeThese reports now provide both field technicians and other users an important view into asset and aggregated, site-level data.

The report, downloadable to a .CSV file, is leveraged to track asset run-time hours across three key categories: test (maintenance), outages, and for asset run or activation hours, the latter fulfilling a common need in grid services applications. The report is used at client installations where state regulators could audit run records in situations, for example, where Air Quality Indices (AQIs) would otherwise limit or not permit test-maintenance Run Types.

Quick Setup Steps

To enable the Generator Run Report, the user must have administrative access enabled.

  1. Once toggled to on, the user (with administrative permissions) clicks directly to the report for sites to which the administrator has access.
  2. To immediately view the Report, click the menu option nested under the Settings icon.

On-screen quick filtering allows the user to filter out run types or change the date range. This is useful for file exports.

The export feature applies to all records on the page. Event selections will not affect the CSV file contents.

Run Type Modifications

At the bottom of the aggregated report, we’ve included functionality to allow the user to correctly classify records and then to include in the export as needed. Any updates to the record will include the name of the user who made the change (not shown).

To update the Run Type, click to select the record of the event, and use the drawer widget at the bottom of the page to apply a new Run Type value. Click Apply Changes to persist the new value in the system.

The Run Type will automatically update in the event run records.

The user can also sort by Site, Equipment, Run Start or Run End time, as well as by Run Type. Click in the table header to sort in ascending or descending order. The user may also click again to clear or remove a sort request.

Look for further enhancements in the coming weeks as we fine tune the look and feel and provide additional filtering options.
