Transmission system models provide the foundation for our planning process. We build reliability (Powerflow and Dynamics) and economic models to support the core planning functions necessary to ensure compliance with our Tariff and North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards. We employ a collaborative stakeholder driven process to develop assumptions that ensure appropriate modeling of future transmission system scenarios. Models are also coordinated with our neighboring entities to ensure systems are accurately represented across our seams.
Models developed by MISO are used for a variety of near-term and long-term planning studies. On an annual basis, we build models to represent a 10 year planning horizon. The modeling process begins in September and concludes the following August. Our staff reviews the data provided by stakeholders for reasonableness, and compiles it into a set of models. Throughout the process, we review models for reasonableness of data and performance. Stakeholders review draft models and provide us with feedback before they become final.
