area under the purview of a Planning Coordinator may include as few as one Transmission Planner. The Planning Coordinator’s scope of activities is intended to span a broader area that may include BES assets of multiple Transmission Planners. All BES Facilities should be assigned to a Transmission Planner and to a Planning Coordinator, so that there are no gaps in the assessment of the BES. Planning Coordinators work through a variety of processes to conduct facilitated, coordinated, joint, centralized, or regional planning activities to the extent that all portions of the interconnected BES are completely coordinated for planning activities. Relationships with Other Functional Entities 1. Establish power system modeling data requirements in conjunction with interconnected Transmission Planners and other Planning Coordinators. 2. Collect data for power system modeling and assessments from the Transmission Planner. 3. Determine transfer capability with neighboring Planning Coordinators. 4. Exchange information on Contingencies, criteria, System Operating Limits (SOLs), Remedial Action Schemes (RAS), automatic load-shedding schemes, and plans with the Reliability Coordinator and other Planning Coordinators. 5. Assess the performance of the Transmission system, in coordination with Transmission Planners. 6. Collect and review reports on Transmission, loads and resources from Transmission Planners. 7. Facilitate the integration of the respective plans of the Transmission Planners within the Planning Coordinator area, and adjacent Planning Coordinator areas, as appropriate. a. Review the integrated plan with respect to established reliability needs considering the impact on and by adjoining Systems. b. In coordination with the Transmission Planners, facilitate the development of alternative solutions for plans that do not meet those reliability performance criteria. 7 Definition of Planning Authority from the NERC Glossary of Terms (as of May 15, 2016). In the Glossary, Planning Coordinator and Planning Authority are defined interchangeably. NERC | Reliability Functional Model | June 2016 7

Transmission Planning and Transmission Planner Transmission Planning Tasks 1. Develop and maintain methodologies, criteria and tools for the analysis and simulation of the Transmission systems. 2. Develop, acquire and validate information required for Transmission assessments including: a. Transmission Facility characteristics and Ratings; b. Demand and Electrical Energy forecasts, capacity resources, and Demand-Side Management (DSM) programs; c. Generator unit performance characteristics and capabilities; d. Commitments for firm Transmission Interchange; and e. Load forecasts and generation dispatch scenarios. 3. Develop and maintain power system models (steady state, dynamics, and short circuit) necessary for the assessment of Transmission system performance for identified scenarios.

    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.
