North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standard MOD-032-1 establishes consistent modeling data requirements and reporting procedures for the development of planning models. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the MOD-032 standard with an effective date of May 1, 2014.
MOD-032 consists of four requirements:
- Requirement R1 (effective July 1st, 2015): Planning Coordinators (PC) and Transmission Planners (TP) develop data requirements and reporting procedures
- Requirement R2 (effective July 1, 2016): Data Owners submit data consistent with data requirements and reporting procedures established in R1
- Requirement R3 (effective July 1, 2016):Data Owners respond to written notification of technical concerns on their data raised by PCs or TPs
- Requirement R4 (effective July 1, 2016):PCs to submit models to ERO (or designee) to support creation of interconnection-wide models
Data Submission Responsibilities
Pursuant to requirements under MOD-032-1, MISO as a NERC register Planning Coordinator (PC), and its stakeholders, including many NERC registered Transmission Planners (TP), and owners of facilities and data within MISO’s footprint jointly established a set of common procedures for submitting the data necessary to developing planning models.
Agreed upon reporting responsibilities shown below:
- Generator Owners: Submit modeling data for their existing and approved future generating facilities. Ensure data is consistent with the topology submitted by their interconnected Transmission Owner.
- Load Serving Entities: Provide their load forecasts corresponding to developed scenarios. Ensure data is consistent with the topology submitted by their TO.
- Transmission Owners: Submit modeling data for their existing and approved future transmission facilities and inter-area transactions.
- MISO and Transmission Planners: Develop modeling data requirements and reporting procedures.
- MISO as the Planning Coordinator: Submit models for its planning area to the Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) or designee.
In collaboration with our stakeholders, we developed data reporting procedures needed to support the development of power flow and dynamics models that realistically simulate steady-state and dynamic behavior of the transmission system.
