Dispatching in Adverse Conditions

image_Adverse_WeatherThe course is intended to provide system personnel with an explanation and understanding of Bulk Electric Power system operations during adverse weather conditions. This module provides a unique opportunity to earn NERC CEHs related to both NERC Standards and simulation. The module provides a review of NERC EOP Standards that include: EOP-004, EOP-005, EOP-006, EOP-008, EOP-010, and EOP-011. The module then provides a brief overview of System Operator general areas of responsibility. The module then proceeds to natural disasters that have the potential to impact the operation of the BES. The natural disaster events discussion includes hurricanes, ice storms, earthquakes, wildfires and flooding, and finally Geo-Magnetic Disturbances. During each discussion previous system events are explored and considerations for system personnel. Each disaster discussion is followed by simulation activities dealing with the associated disaster. As part of the activity completion, students are required to document both what they observed in the simulator, in addition to the actions that were implemented.
