Presentation Transcript


Study ResultsNorthwest Firmed Resource Option

This slide deck contains results from the 2012 TEPPC Study Program related to the Northwest Firmed Resource Option Studies. The generation results for the associated transmission expansion projects follow immediately along with flow information for the added transmission.


Hydro Firming

Modeling Goal

  • Compare different hydro dispatches in different wind conditions given various modeling techniques

  • Compare path flows and production costs

  • Implementation Steps

  • Start with 2022 PC23 NW Resource Option (+12,000 GWh)

  • Increase WECC annual energy demand 8%

  • Add 12,000 GWh of renewables to NW

  • Under the purview of high wind in a particular region, investigate how a nearby region’s hydro responds based on different types of modeling

  • Investigate how the changes listed above impact path flows


  • Renewable Options Under High Load

  • Firmed Cases

Increase WECC-wide load 8%
