Summary: Technical Conference On Increasing Real-Time And Day-Ahead Market Efficiency Through Improved Software (AD10-12-005) (Washington, DC)

This conference will bring together experts from diverse backgrounds and experiences, including electric system operators, software developers, government, research centers and academia for the purposes of stimulating discussion, sharing information, and identifying fruitful avenues for research concerning the technical aspects of improved software for increasing efficiency.  This conference is intended to build on the discussions initiated in the previous Commission staff technical conferences on increasing market and planning efficiency through improved software.  As such, staff will be facilitating a discussion to explore research and steps needed to implement approaches to market modeling which appear to have significant promise for potential efficiency improvements in the following areas:  stochastic modeling; optimal transmission switching; alternating current (AC) optimal power flow modeling; and use of active and dynamic transmission ratings.

The Commission will accept comments following the conference, with a deadline of July 31, 2014. We recommend eFiling your comments.
