Q-Technology has been using several standards applied for software development. Among these the IEEE 830 standard for specification and documentation of the initial software developmen phases has been used frequently. In addition IEEE 762 standard on reliability terms for generation has been used frequently during development of standards on wind power.

IEEE 830

Scope of IEEE 830
this is a recommended practice for writing software requirements specifications. It describes the content and qualities of a good software requirements specification (SRS) and presents several sample SRS outlines.

This recommended practice is aimed at specifying requirements of software to be developed but also can be applied to assist in the selection of in-house and commercial software products. However, application to already developed software could be counterproductive.

When software is embedded in some larger system, such as medical equipment, then issues beyond those identified in this recommended practice may have to be addressed.
This recommended practice describes the process of creating a product and the content of the product. The product is an SRS. This recommended practice can be used to create such an SRS directly or can be used as a model for a more specific standard.
This recommended practice does not identify any specific method, nomenclature, or tool for preparing an SRS.

IEEE 762

Scope of IEEE 762
This document standardizes terminology and indexes for reporting electric generating unit reliability, availability, and productivity performance measures. A generating unit includes all equipment up to the high-voltage terminal of the generator step-up transformer.

Reliability in this standard encompasses measures of the ability of generating units to perform their intended function.

Availability measures are concerned with the fraction of time a unit is capable of providing service, and account for outage frequency and duration.

Productivity measures are concerned with the total power produced by a plant with respect to its potential power production. Therefore, productivity measures consider magnitude of outage as well as frequency and duration of outage.
