Future Power Grid Releases Two More Open-source Tools

September 2014

Two more Future Power Grid Initiative open-source tools have been made publicly available for the first time—the GridOPTICS™ Software System (GOSS), a middleware that connects grid applications with sources of grid data; and the Framework for Network Co-Simulation (FNCS), a platform that merges communications (data) simulators with grid transmission and distribution simulators.

The GridOPTICS tool suite continues to grow. Both of these resources will help enable development of innovations to improve grid operations and management. To learn more, watch the videos on GOSS and FNCS.
