Abstract

The Western Electricity Coordinating Council, recognizing the importance of interconnection-wide transmission planning, formed the Transmission Expansion Planning Policy Committee (TEPPC) in 2006. TEPPC is tasked with conducting regional transmission expansion planning studies involving system modeling; as well as performing analyses of future transmission congestion and operational impacts. TEPPC utilizes the production cost model (PCM) PROMOD IV
