9. Provide facility and operating information to the Reliability Coordinator. 10. Provide to the Transmission Planner information on the capability to Curtail (reduce) and shed load during Emergencies. 11. Provide Total Transfer Capabilities, System Operating Limits, and methodology for calculating Available Transfer Capability for respective Transmission paths to Transmission Service Provider. 20 Definition of Transmission Operator from the NERC Glossary of Terms (as of May 15, 2016). 21 The Glossary definition of “Facility” is not appropriate because the definition is limited in application to BES Elements. In this context, the intent is to have broader application to include responsibilities for non-BES elements. NERC | Reliability Functional Model | June 2016 22

Transmission Operations and Transmission Operator 12. Receive operating and availability status of generating units from Generator Operators including status of automatic voltage regulators and power system stabilizers. 13. Receive operational data from Generator Operators. 14. Develop operating agreements or procedures with Transmission Owners. Real-time 15. Coordinates load shedding with, or as directed by, the Reliability Coordinator. 16. Provide Real-time operations information to the Reliability Coordinator and Balancing Authority. 17. Notify Generator Operators of Transmission system problems (e.g., voltage limitations or equipment overloads that may affect generator operations). 18. Request Reliability Coordinator to assist in mitigating equipment overloads. (e.g., re-dispatch, Transmission loading relief). 19. Deploy reactive resources from Transmission Owners, Generator Owners, and Distribution Providers to maintain acceptable voltage profiles. 20. Direct Distribution Providers to shed load if needed to ensure reliability within the Transmission Operator Area. 21. Implement flow control device operations for those ties under the Transmission Operator’s purview as directed by the Balancing Authorities or Reliability Coordinator. 22. Receive reliability alerts from Reliability Coordinator. 23. Direct Balancing Authorities and Distribution Providers to implement system restoration plans. 24. Receive Real-time operating information from Generator Operators. NERC | Reliability Functional Model | June 2016 23

Interchange and Interchange Coordinator Interchange Tasks 1. Receive completed Request for Interchange (RFI) ( i.e., valid source and sink, Transmission arrangements). 2. Transition RFI to Arranged Interchange. 3. Forward Arranged Interchange to entities for approval, change, or denial. 4. Collect approvals and denials of requested Arranged Interchange. 5. Communicate status of an Arranged Interchange that becomes Confirmed Interchange or otherwise. 6. Communicate Confirmed Interchange information to the appropriate reliability assessment tools ( e.g. , the interchange distribution calculator in the Eastern Interconnection).

    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.
