About the Code

The Grid Solutions Framework (GSF) is an open source collection of .NET code used by electric power utilities and various open source projects. GSF contains a large variety of code useful for any .NET project consisting of hundreds of class libraries that extend the functionality included in the .NET Framework. It makes many of the more complex .NET features (e.g., sockets and encryption) easier to use and adds functions not included in the .NET.

Example Components:
  • Adapter based time-series processing and data exchange library with WPF UI configuration screens for managing real-time data
  • Various utility protocol libraries, e.g., PQDIF, COMTRADE, IEEE C37.118, IEEE 1344, IEC 61850-90-5, UTK F-NET, SEL Fast Message, BPA PDCstream, Macrodyne, MMS
  • Configuration API for easy and secure access to application settings.
  • High speed binary parsing framework for implementing protocol parsing.
  • Well vetted abstract communications framework for socket (TCP, UDP) and serial communication.
  • Security framework for implementing role-based security in ASP.NET, WCF, WPF, Windows Forms and Windows Services.
  • Windows Service Template for quickly developing windows services with remoting capability out of the box.
  • Base WCF service for creating WCF services that can be self-hosted in Windows Service, Console, WPF or Windows Forms application.
  • WCF-based Message Bus that can be hosted inside ASP.NET, Windows Service, Console, WPF or Windows Forms application.
