Interregional planning activities encompass study efforts with MISO, ISO New England, New York Independent System Operator and the North Carolina Transmission Planning Collaborative (NCTPC). Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Order 1000 implementation will expand PJM interregional coordination to include the Southeastern Regional Transmission Planning (SERTP) area as well.
PJM’s RTEP process integrates interregional planning initiatives that have become increasingly more complex and expansive in light of emerging public policy issues and market dynamics.
Each interregional study effort is conducted in accordance with a specifically defined scope and may include reliability analysis, stability analysis, transfer analysis, market efficiency analysis, short circuit analysis as well as generation and merchant transmission interconnection analysis. The development and maintenance of updated joint planning system models is also necessarily a key element of all interregional study activities conducted jointly with the planning staffs of adjoining systems. Specific interregional activity information can be found online for New York / New England, MISO and NCTPC.
