Case Study Results on the Benefits to Using Probabilistic Methods for Bulk Power System Planning
Registration URL: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5068181620150615298
The consultants will demonstrate the potential role and benefits of using probabilistic methods in bulk power system planning using case studies. Throughout the case studies, EPRI in conjuction with Astrape Consulting, General Reliability, Advanced Grounding Concepts, and Southern Company will explain how probabilistic methods could be supplemental to the existing deterministic methods. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), and the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) participated by providing relevant network models and advice.

Incorporating Risk Analysis Into Planning Processes – A White Paper on Dealing with Uncertainty in Transmission Planning
Registration URL: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2700013893828173826
Slides for the webinar can be viewed here
Join us on Thursday, February 26th for a webinar presentation by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on incorporating risk analysis into planning processes. In particular, EPRI will explain how probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) methodologies can provide a framework for considering uncertainties and risks facing transmission planners, how PRA methods can address the complexities introduced by the uncertainties in data and forecasts, and offer guidance on how to incorporate risk analysis into transmission and other resource planning.EPRI completed a white paper on this topic in conjunction with Astrape Consulting, General Reliability, Advanced Grounding Concepts, and Southern Company. The project team will provide an overview of the topics covered in the white paper.
