Dynamic Transfer Capability Task Force Phase 2 Report Posted

The Phase 2 Report for the DTC Task Force has been posted.  The report proposes a methodology that Transmission Providers could apply to calculate limits on Dynamic Transfers for their system.  The report also defines terms to assist in determining the acceptable limits on variability, including:  TVL (Transfer Variability Limit).  The DTC Task Force was formed in October 2010 to develop a technical consensus on how to facilitate increased Dynamic Transfers without compromising system reliability.  This is the second of three reports the Task Force plans to publish before concluding its work in Fall 2011.

"Chelan PUD is a strong supporter of ColumbiaGrid and the work that’s accomplished through the transmission Planning and Expansion Functional Agreement (PEFA). As a result of that process, the mid-C utilities (Chelan, Grant and Douglas PUDs) and Bonneville Power Administration were able to reach an agreement that defined the need for a new transmission line, as well as determine who will construct, own and pay for the facility. Those difficult decisions were made successful through the expert and independent expertise of the ColumbiaGrid staff."
