Title: Development Of A New Procedure For Assessing Power System Reliability In Preparation For Nerc's Standards Compliance
Author: Von Pinho, Frederico
Abstract: In response to historical reliability issues of the past and following the evolution of newly developing power system markets , NERC has created new standards for maintaining and enforcing power system reliability . Entities are still reviewing the standards and finding ways to comply with the same . Non -compliance can result in financial penalties that can add -up to $1M per day per violation .The aim of this thesis is to propose a procedure to be followed by entities wishing to comply with NERC's reliability requirements for a preliminary determination /understanding of the current reliability situation of the system and therefore foresee any difficulties might appear in complying . As a second criterion , the thesis aimed in develops modules that use power system tools that are part of a transmission system's planner daily activity , such as : power flow analysis , contingency analysis , etc .In lieu of validating the concept developed within this thesis , the PJM system was used as test bed .
