KRSA staff has extensive experience in the planning, coordination and analysis of transmission system. KRSA transmission planners have access to transmission models for the entire nation and utilize Siemens PSS/E and GE PSLF to analyze system impacts. We have performed numerous transmission planning studies for our clients including:
New generator interconnection requests need to be studies to determine the impact on reliability to the existing system. KRSA can provide OATT generator interconnection analysis to ensure the system remains reliable.
As load growth or new loads are integrated into a utility's system reliability concerns can arise. KRSA can developed and analyze technical options for integrating load growth and new loads ensure the most cost effective and reliable solution is selected.
Compliance with TPL standard is not optional. KRSA can provide technical study work to ensure compliance with NERC/WECC TPL standards.
Certain locations on the grid are more prone to problems if new generation is developed. KRSA can provide high-level cursory assessments to determine the best locations for generator interconnections.
Total Transfer Capacity (TTC) and Available Transfer Capacity (ATC) determine the contract capacity which can be sold to transmission users. KRSA can perform TTC/ATC study work in support of compliance with these standards (MOD-029).
KRSA can provide steady-state load flow contingency analysis to determine the impacts of outages on transmission system reliability.
KRSA can provide transient stability contingency analysis to determine the impacts of outages on transmission system reliability.
Whether for reliability, load growth or new generation needs, KRSA can develop, analyze and recommend technical options for transmission system expansion.
