Title: Open Energy Information System version 2.0

Abstract

OpenEIS was created to provide standard methods for authoring, sharing, testing, using, and improving algorithms for operational building energy efficiency with building managers and building owners. OpenEIS is designed as a no-cost/low-cost solution that will propagate the fault detection and diagnostic (FDD) solutions into the marketplace by providing state- of- the-art analytical and diagnostic algorithms. As OpenEIS penetrates the market, demand by control system manufacturers and integrators serving small and medium commercial customers will help push these types of commercial software tool offerings into the broader marketplace.

  • The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 called for Reasonable Further Progress (RFP) inventories to be submitted to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the purpose of demonstrating strategies by which a 15% reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions will be achieved over the years 1990 to 1996. This requirement applies to moderate, serious, severe, and extreme ozone nonattainment areas. In addition, serious, severe, and extreme areas must demonstrate at least a 3% annual average reduction beginning in 1996 and continuing thereafter until attainment is reached. In order to meet section 182(b)(1) and 182(c)(2) requiremnts, state/local airmore » agencies require a computer system capable of performing `what if scenario analysis` and reporting the final results (i.e., their Rate of Progress (ROP) inventory) to the EPA (i.e., Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS)). This system will be based upon the 3% RFP Tracking System that was developed in FY92/FY93. The 3% RFP Tracking System to a Multiple Projections System (MPS) will continue to be within the framework of a Windows application. The system will support ROP inventories for ozone and carbon monoxide (CO) and thus will contain VOC, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and CO data. The most significant change from the original 3% RFP Tracking System to the MPS is the ability to submit a `final` projection emissions inventory in the format required by the AIRS Facility Subsystem (AFS) and the AIRS Area and Mobile Subsystem (AMS). The MPS is by outward appearance a collection of screens with buttons the user can click. These buttons simplify the task of setting user-defined parameters which the program will use in projecting future emissions and generating screen or hard copy output.« less
  • The Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) Stored Waste Examination Pilot Plant (SWEPP) operations staff use nondestructive analysis methods to characterize the radiological contents of contact-handled radioactive waste containers. Containers of waste from Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site and other Department of Energy (DOE) sites are currently stored at SWEPP. Before these containers can be shipped to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), SWEPP must verify compliance with storage, shipping, and disposal requirements. This program has been in operation since 1985 at the INEL Radioactive Waste Management Complex (RWMC). One part of the SWEPP program measures neutron emissions from the containersmore » and estimates the mass of plutonium and other transuranic (TRU) isotopes present. A Passive/Active Neutron (PAN) assay system developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory is used to perform these measurements. A computer program named NEUT2 was originally used to perform the data acquisition and reduction functions for the neutron measurements. This program was originally developed at Los Alamos and extensively modified by a commercial vendor of PAN systems and by personnel at the INEL. NEUT2 uses the analysis methodology outlined, but no formal documentation exists on the program itself. The SWEPP Assay System (SAS) computer program replaced the NEUT2 program in early 1994. The SAS software was developed using an `object model` approach and is documented in accordance with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) standards. The new program incorporates the basic analysis algorithms found in NEUT2. Additional functionality and improvements include a graphical user interface, the ability to change analysis parameters without program code modification, an `object model` design approach and other features for improved flexibility and maintainability.« less

The primary purpose of this test plan and report is to document the test process and to verify that the requirements for the SAS are implemented correctly. This test plan and report satisfies the testing requirements of ASME NQA-1-1994 Supplement 11S-2 for a Quality Level 2 application. The intended audiences for this test plan are the developers and verification and validation analysts for the SAS.« less

  • This document is the Software Configuration Management Plan (SCMP) for the Federal Emergency Management Information System (FEMIS) project. FEMIS is an automated decision support system that integrates the planning and analysis, operations and response, and recovery phases of emergency management. It has broad application across the full range of emergency planning and operations. The SCMP will describe the configuration management system to be used for the control and maintenance of the software and associated documentation during development, test, and production of the FEMIS project. This plan provides information on the requirements and procedures necessary for the configuration management activities ofmore » FEMIS. It identifies the software configuration management requirements and establishes the methodology for generating configuration identifiers, controlling engineering changes, maintaining status accounting, and performing audits and reviews during the design and development of software configuration items. This plan defines the Software Configuration Management (SCM) activities necessary for maintaining all support software items and associated documentation being developed, procured, tested, sustained and kept in the production environment for FEMIS. It will apply to all phases of the software development life cycle, up to and including the time of delivery to the customer.« less
