15 Minute Scheduling Task Force

JJ Jamieson

Chair 15MINTF

August 17, 2011



Comprised of MIS / ISAS members

Discussing the “how” of 15-minute scheduling rather than the “why”

Purpose - to solicit and compile a solid understanding of how 15-minute scheduling would impact WECC members



The task force asked for information on how intra-hour scheduling was currently being handled and what it would take to move to 15 minute scheduling

Safe to say there is not a common approach to either how we are currently dealing with intra-hour scheduling or how we would deal with “imposed” 15 minute scheduling

The survey

The Survey

The survey was composed of 10 key areas

Bumping of Schedules

Duration of Schedules

Volume of Transactions

Common Timelines

Coordinated Checkouts


Transmission Rights

Staffing and Automation

Reliability Standards and Criteria


Work completed and observations

Work completed and observations

  • There was agreement on a number of issues such as:

    • bumping

    • need for common ramp rates at points of interchange

    • concerns about intra-hour transmission products

    • etc
