1 The Western Interconnection Synchrophasor Program (WISP ) Update Vickie VanZandt Joint Synchronized Information Subcommittee Salt Lake City August 10, 2010

2 Program overview recap WISP is an interconnection-wide synchrophasor system expected to enable smart grid functionality. WISP will deploy: Upgraded or replacement Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs); New PMUs; Phasor Data Concentrators (PDCs) and SuperPDCs; Historical data archival systems at WECC RCs; and Wide area data network to connect measurement devices. 2

3 Program overview recap (cont.) Real-time and off-line applications for: Situation awareness for operators and reliability coordinators; Event and system performance analysis for operations and planning engineers; Model validation and improvement; Real-time control and protection – including wide-area controls; and System restoration. Funding: $54M from DOE and $54M from WISP Partner Entities. 3

4 Partner entities Cost Share Partners in WISP grant Bonneville Power Administration California ISO/California Energy Commission/EPG Idaho Power Corporation NV Energy Pacific Gas & Electric (also sub-recipient of DOE funds) PacifiCorp Salt River Project Southern California Edison WECC 4

5 Western Interconnection Synchrophasor Program Governance of program includes three groups: An Executive Steering Committee chaired by Program Director (Mark Maher). It also includes two non-affiliated WECC Directors (Jack King and Tim Newton), and executives from the other eight entity partners A Technical Advisory Committee to include entity partner project and technical leads and other synchrophasor technology expertise Joint Synchronized Information Subcommittee (JSIS) whos charter subsumes the Disturbance Monitoring Work Group and Wide-Area Measurement Task Force and includes a longer term focus than three-year WISP Program 5

6 DOE status update Contract signed with DOE on April 1, DOE deliverables completed: Final WISP budget Final WISP Project Execution Plan (PEP) with input from Partner Entities individual PEPs Final WISP Metrics and Benefits Reporting Plan Draft WISP Cyber Security Plan (Final due July 30) DOE reporting processes are now complete: WECC providing monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual reporting as required. 6

7 Program status update PMU placement criteria WISPs Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Joint Synchronized Information Subcommittee (JSIS) have identified criteria for placing PMUs. PMUs and owners – High-priority placement sites have ownership beyond 9 partner entities. These 11 other parties have been invited to join WISP. 7

8 8 of the 11 invited additional participants have accepted Alberta Electric System Operator Arizona Public Service British Columbia Transmission Company/BC Hydro El Paso Electric Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Northwestern Energy Public Service of New Mexico San Diego Gas and Electric Tri-State G&T Tucson Electric Western Area Power Administration 8

9 NERC Universal Data Sharing Agreement…. ….for exchange of synchrophasor data: 9 of 9 Partner Entities, and 2 of 11 Additional Participants ….have executed the NDA with NERC 9

10 1. Phasor Data Concentrators (PDCs) RFI responses received from 12 vendors in March. RFP to be issued to vendors September PDC vendor selected December Wide Area Network (WAN) Expected to be a managed network solution. RFI responses from 10 vendors received in April. RFP to be issued to vendors August WAN vendor selected December 2010 Infrastructure and applications: Four procurement tracks 10

11 3. Applications RFI responses from 11 vendors received in May. RFP process complete and vendor selection scheduled for April Reliability Coordination Office Infrastructure Data Center expansion Vancouver – February 2011 Loveland – May 2011 IT Infrastructure deployed Test hardware – July 2011 Production hardware – August 2012 Note: All PMUs to be procured by partner or participating entities. Infrastructure and applications: Four procurement tracks (cont.) 11
