MOD-032 Modeling Data

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s MOD-032-1 standard establishes consistent modeling data requirements and reporting procedures needed to develop planning horizon models. These models are necessary to support reliability analyses of the transmission system. According to the standard, PJM must develop data requirements, reporting procedures and schedules for the transmission owners, generation owners and other stakeholders in its footprint to support the building of steady state, dynamics and short circuit models. These models are then given to the NERC designee to support building interconnection-wide models.

Requirement 1 (enforceable July 1, 2015) states that as the regional Planning Coordinator and Transmission Planner, PJM must develop steady state, dynamics and short-circuit modeling data requirements and reporting procedures. This includes the data format, level of detail, case types and scenarios, and a schedule for submission. PJM has developed MOD-032 Steady State, Dynamics and Short Circuit Modeling Data Requirements and ProceduresPDF to outline how it expects to work with transmission owners, generation owners and load serving entities.

Requirement 2 (enforceable July 1, 2016) states that each transmission owner, generation owner and load serving entity in PJM’s footprint must provide steady state, dynamics and short-circuit modeling data to PJM as outlined in the MOD-032 Steady State, Dynamics and Short Circuit Modeling Data Requirements and ProceduresPDF.

MOD-032 Data Requirements and Procedure Document

To comply with requirement 1 of NERC standard MOD-032-1, PJM has developed the MOD-032 Steady State, Dynamics and Short Circuit Modeling Data Requirements and Reporting Procedures. The document notes the information that transmission owners, generation owners and load serving entities must provide, as well as the required submission methods and schedules. This is a living document that can be updated because of PJM’s needs or NERC designee requirements.

MOD-032 Generator Owner Data Submission

Planning Center is PJM’s planning tool, which is made up of a suite of modules that allow members to work with data required for long-range planning studies.

The Gen Model module lets generation owners upload the required data for NERC’s MOD-032-1 standard.
