Overview
PSPO

New and recent developments are having major impacts on the electric power industry. In response to growing sustainability efforts by the industry, the rapid development renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar, is affecting the structure and operation of the power system and driving significant investments in transmission infrastructure.

The Power System Planning & Operations program’s strategic direction is to enable the use of new technologies, including FACTS, to enhance the use of existing and new transmission facilities while continuing to maintain a high level of reliability. This includes exploring and developing tools and techniques for planning and operating transmission systems in a reliable, secure and cost-effective manner.

Topics & Direction:

  • Planning and Operations for Power Systems with increasing amounts of Renewable Generation
  • System Adequacy, Reliability, Grid Capacity and Security
  • Making best use of emerging and innovative technologies within the realm of PMUs, FACTS and HVDC
  • Advances in Simulation and Modeling Tools & Techniques
  • Planning and Operations Practices in Today's Regulatory and Market Environment
Program Services
  • Networking & Information Sharing

    • Annual face-to-face Business Meetings with webinar call-in options
    • 4-5 conference calls and learning webinars
    • Access to a network of ~1,000 electrical utility peers from around the world
  • Industry Benchmarking

    • Requests for Information where your questions or concerns are circulated to other group
      participants with rapid-fire response rates
    • Internal benchmarking surveys for state-of-the-industry intelligence
  • Collaborative Technical Projects

    • The flexibility to support only those projects which are relevant to your organization, meaning you know exactly, where your research dollars are going
    • Supported by CEATI management, participating utilities and consultants work together across all phases of a project’s life-cycle, ensuring your organization receives practical, high-quality deliverables
  • Unparalleled Return on Investment

    • Ability to split project funding costs with other organizations, resulting in highly-leveraged funding opportunities
    • Reduced pricing on published reports, training courses, and industry-open conferences
