RTO_SS

Electronic Scheduling System

For Southwest Power Pool

what is rto ss
What is RTO_SS?
  • The result of a three year effort
  • Electronic scheduling system that utilizes existing infrastructure and replaces the “1960’s” style of scheduling.
  • Meets all FERC requirements under Order 2000
  • Meets all NERC scheduling requirements
design goals
Design Goals

Flexibility

  • Data must be easily viewable and downloadable
    • Allows users to access data in multiple ways
  • Must be able to handle different schedule types

Use standard formats

  • Most Schedules will be entered through NERC tags
  • Downloaded Schedules will be in a standard format
  • Net Schedule Information posted on ICCP node

Meet NERC and FERC requirements

Reduce work load

  • Replaces tag approval interface
  • Most Schedules should be verified electronically
  • Simplify schedule checkouts
status of rto ss
Status of RTO_SS
  • Currently in SPP Testing Phase
  • User Testing Set for April 17, 2001
  • Parallel Testing begins April 27, 2001
    • Details to be published later
  • System Online May 15, 2001
  • Schedule Monitored by SPP STF
design goals cont
Design Goals (cont.)

Reliability/Performance

  • Redundant servers at a remote site
  • Reliable and redundant communications
  • Must be responsive under heavy user use

Meet future needs

  • RTO seams issues
  • FERC OASIS v. 2
  • NERC Electronic Scheduling
  • Retail Open Access

Cost

Meet Time Line

  • Fully functional by 5/15/01

schedule types
Schedule Types
  • Energy Schedules via Tags
  • Reserve Sharing Schedules via ARS
    • These will be uploaded via ARS for immediate notification and implementation by Control Areas
  • Loss Repayment Schedules
    • These are calculated from tags containing losses that were self-supplied and are to be distributed real-time
  • Dynamic Schedules via Tags
    • Dynamic schedules are identified by “DYN” in comments field on tag.
  • System is capable of defining new schedule types
data exchange
Data Exchange
  • OATI’s webData Product at SPP
    • Contains all schedule data locally to SPP
  • SPP Methods for Exporting sched data
    • OPS1 Web Access for Viewing/Download
    • Automated Procedures by SPP Staff based on User Needs
    • ODBC Backend Connectivity
  • Currently configuring this setup
rto ss displays
RTO_SS Displays
  • Schedule Approval and Status Displays
    • Includes ability to view individual tags
  • Variety of Checkout Screens
    • Includes ability to checkout groups of individual schedules by totals, such as daily on/off peak totals
    • Includes ability to resolve schedule mismatches between control areas
  • Capable of receiving Schedule “Actuals” and calculating Inadvertent between members
  • Can view schedules by SOURCE or SINK within the member CA
  • Additional displays exist… OATI wants to meet the needs of the users.
user requirements
User Requirements
  • User Registration with the SPP

    • Redundancy at SPP
    • ICCP Redundancy
    • Redundant Communication Access
contingency plans1
Contingency Plans
  • What if ICCP link is down?
    • Data is still viewable from GUI
  • What if SPPNET is down?
    • Access RTO_SS via the Internet
  • What if OATI has major failure?
  • What if SPP has major failure?
  • Any other major points of failure?
