Summary: Public Meeting on mandatory reliability standards for the Bulk-Power System (RM06-16-000)(Washington, DC)(Free Webcast)
Description: This Public Meeting is to present research conducted by the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison sponsored by the Commission, on Topological and Impedance Element Ranking (TIER) of the Bulk-Power System.

The Commission’s Office of Electric Reliability (OER) initiated this project to develop, for purposes of section 215 of the Federal Power Act, a methodology to aid in identifying and ranking the elements of the Bulk-Power System in the United States. Specifically, OER staff is seeking:
  1. develop a process to distinguish those facilities that should not be considered part of the Bulk-Power System from those facilities that should be considered part of the Bulk-Power System;
  2. identify the elements needed to operate each of the electric interconnections; and
  3. rank the importance of those elements.
This project may lead to a methodology that could be utilized in future proceedings to aid in refining the scope of what constitutes the Bulk-Power System subject to section 215 of the Federal Power Act.

The conference will be held at:
    Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
    888 First Street NE
    Washington, DC

    A free live webcast is available for this meeting. All webcasts are archived for 3 months.
