Relationships with Other Functional Entities 1. Develop Reliability Standards that identify the functional entities responsible for complying with the Reliability Standard, including: Reliability Coordinators, Balancing Authorities, Transmission Operators, Transmission Owners, Generator Operators, Generator Owners, Transmission Service Providers, Planning Coordinators, Transmission Planners, Resource Planners, and Distribution Providers. 2. Obtain the information necessary to monitor compliance with Reliability Standards from functional entities, including: Reliability Coordinators, Balancing Authorities, Transmission Operators, Transmission Owners, Generator Operators, Generator Owners, Transmission Service Providers, Planning Coordinators, Transmission Planners, Resource Planners, and Distribution Providers. 3. Obtain the information necessary to complete registration from the appropriate functional entities, including: Reliability Coordinators, Balancing Authorities, Transmission Operators, Transmission Owners, Generator Operators, Generator Owners, Transmission Service Providers, Planning Coordinators, Transmission Planners, Resource Planners, and Distribution Providers.

Planning Reliability and Planning Coordinator Planning Reliability Tasks 1. Establish data requirements necessary to develop power system models for analysis within the Planning Coordinator area. 2. Collect and validate information from Transmission Planners, such as modeling data, to perform a Transmission assessment of the Planning Coordinator area. 3. Assess the performance of the Transmission system, with the loads, resources, and proposed projects included in the Transmission Planner’s Planning Assessment (including any Corrective Action Plan(s)). 4. Coordinate with adjoining Planning Coordinators to develop interconnection models with appropriate loads, resources, and System topology. 5. Evaluate and report on the performance of the consolidated Transmission assessments. 6. Evaluate interconnection reliability concerns among affected Planning Coordinators.

Planning Reliability and Planning Coordinator Planning Coordinator Definition The responsible entity that coordinates and integrates transmission Facilities and service plans, resource plans, and Protection Systems. 7 Introduction to the Planning Coordinator By its very nature, BES planning involves multiple entities. Since all electric systems within an integrated network are electrically connected, whatever one system does can affect the other systems. The Planning Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the assessment of the BES within its Planning Coordinator area. The PC assessment includes the collection of Transmission assets over which the Planning Coordinator is responsible for coordinating planning (“PC Area”). The PC Area is normally comprised of more than one Transmission Planner; however, the area under the purview of a Planning Coordinator may include as few as one Transmission Planner. The Planning

    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.
