Reliability Operations and Reliability Coordinator Reliability Operations Tasks 1. Monitor all reliability-related parameters within the reliability area, including generation dispatch and maintenance plans for generation and Transmission. 2. Identify, communicate, and direct actions if necessary to relieve reliability threats and limit violations in the reliability area. 3. Develop Interconnection Reliability Operating Limits (to protect from instability and Cascading). 4. Assist in determining Interconnected Operations Services (IOS) requirements for: a. balancing generation and load, 10 and b. reliability of Transmission 5. Perform reliability analysis (actual and Contingency) for the reliability area. 6. Direct revisions to Transmission maintenance plans as permitted by Agreements. 7. Direct revisions to generation maintenance plans as permitted by Agreements. 8. Direct implementation of emergency 11 procedures including load-shedding. 9. Direct and coordinate restoration of the BES for its RC Area. 10. Curtail Confirmed Interchange that adversely impacts reliability. 11. Provide appropriate security protections for cyber assets and physical assets, and their related support systems and data. 12. Communicate to appropriate authorities and relevant functional entities of an actual or suspected attack on cyber assets and/or physical assets. 10 The Glossary definition of “Load” is not appropriate because the Glossary definition refers to end-use customer or end- use device; the Glossary definition does not incorporate the concept of quantity. 11 The Glossary definition of “Emergency” is not appropriate because the definition is limited in application to the BES. In this context, the RC may encounter an emergency situation that is broader than the circumstances described in the Glossary definition. NERC | Reliability Functional Model | June 2016 13

Reliability Operations and Reliability Coordinator Reliability Coordinator Definition The entity that is the highest level of authority who is responsible for the Reliable Operation of the BES, has the Wide Area view of the BES, and has the operating tools, processes and procedures, including the authority to prevent or mitigate emergency operating situations in both next-day analysis and real-time operations. The Reliability Coordinator has the purview that is broad enough to enable the calculation of Interconnection Reliability Operating Limits, which may be based on the operating parameters of transmission systems beyond any Transmission Operator’s vision.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
