Transmission Planning and Transmission Planner Transmission Planner Definition The entity that develops a long-term (generally one year and beyond) plan for the reliability (adequacy) of the interconnected bulk electric transmission systems within its portion of the Planning Authority area. 8 Introduction to the Transmission Planner The Transmission Planner is responsible for assessing the long term (generally one year and beyond) Transmission system performance within its Transmission Planner area. The TP assessment includes the collection of Transmission assets over which the Transmission Planner is responsible for planning (“TP Area”). By its very nature, BES planning involves multiple entities. Since all electric Systems within an integrated network are electrically connected, changes planned in one part of the System can affect the other parts of the System. Transmission Planners coordinate their plans with the adjoining Transmission Planners to assess impact on or by those plans. The area under the purview of a Transmission Planner may include one or more Resource Planner areas. All BES Facilities should be under the purview of at least one Transmission Planner. Relationships with Other Functional Entities 1. Coordinate and collect data (steady state, dynamics, and short circuit) for power system modeling from Load-Serving Entities, Generator Owners, Distribution Providers, Resource Planners Transmission Owners, Transmission Service Providers, and other Transmission Planners. 2. Collect information including: a. Transmission facility characteristics and Ratings from the Transmission Owners, Transmission Planners, and Transmission Operators; b. Demand and Electrical Energy forecasts, capacity resources, and Demand-Side Management programs from Load-Serving Entities, and Resource Planners; c. Generator unit performance characteristics and capabilities from Generator Owners; and d. Commitments for firm Transmission Interchange from Transmission Service Providers. 3. Inform Resource Planners and other Transmission Planners of the methodologies and tools for the simulation of the Transmission system. 4. Coordinate BES expansion plans with Transmission Service Providers, Transmission Owners, Reliability Coordinators, Resource Planners, and other Transmission Planners. 5. Report on and coordinate its BES expansion plan implementation with affected Planning Coordinators, Transmission Planners, Resource Planners, Transmission Service Providers, Transmission Owners, Transmission Operators and Reliability Assurers.

    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.
