I would like to know if we can get the PMU data from OpenPDC to MATLAB in real time operation.

Suggest you look at writing an "ActionAdapter" - see documentation for help. Using this you should be able to call your MatLab algorithm using .NET/C# integration features.

I looked up the documentation on ActionAdapter :
It looks like that "TVA.Core.dll" and "TimeSeriesFramework.dll" do not exist anymore in the installation path!

Am I missing something or it's because of changes in new versions ?

Hi Reza,

It is, indeed, because of changes in new versions. In the latest versions of the software, we have renamed those files to "GSF.Core.dll" and "GSF.TimeSeries.dll" respectively.

Thanks a lot!

I just figured it out reading the Time-series Framework project web page.
Is there any available Action Adapter example compatible with new version so I could use it as a practice? It will help me a lot to find the best idea to realize my own adapter.
If yes, I would appreciate it if you help me find it.

There are a few examples. Most of the openPDC's codebase is maintained in the Grid Solutions Framework project, so you will be able to find them there.

DynamicCalculator extends from ActionAdapterBase.

There are several adapter examples in PowerCalculations, most of which extend from CalculatedMeasurementBase.

The AlarmAdapter extends from FacileActionAdapterBase.

The StatisticsEngine also extends from FacileActionAdapterBase.

There are a few more, but these are probably the best examples.

Thank you so much! It's very helpful.

Dear Stephen,

Trying to use OpenPDC libraries like GSF and PhasorProtocolAdapters, I got errors in Visual Studio indicating that the targeted .Net Framework V. 4 is lower than my current version (V.4.6).
What do you suggest to resolve this problem? Do I need to uninstall the newer versions of .Net Framework from Windows?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Reza,

The latest versions of GSF and openPDC make use of .NET 4.6. Applications using later versions of the framework can include assemblies that target older versions of the framework, but not vice-versa. Therefore, your application must target .NET 4.6 in order to reference the libraries in GSF. This can be done from the Properties page for your project within Visual Studio.

Note that you will need to be using Visual Studio 2015 or a .NET Framework Targeting Pack in order to select .NET 4.6.
