1 Baseline Reliability Project Exercises 1. The date is August During your annual reliability analysis, you find low voltage at the 138kV substation SUB1 when the 230kV line from SUB2 to SUB3 is removed from service in the summer of You plan for capacitor bank at SUB1 to meet the voltage guidelines of your Planning Criteria. Does this qualify as a BRP? A. Yes B. No 2. The date is June 2015 and a customer approaches your company with a request for service January 1, The load size is 100MW, and you identify Bulk Electric System upgrades required to meet the needs of customer and maintain system reliability. The project construction lead time for this project is 1.5 years. Does this project meet the requirements for an Out-of-Cycle review? A. Yes B. No April 21,

2 Generation Interconnection Project Exercises 1. MISO posts a contour map to gives people a rough idea about where transmission capacity is potentially available on the MISO network. It is updated periodically based on summer off-peak system condition. By looking at this map, please identify where the transmission capacity may be most available. A. A B. B C. C D. D 2. If you want to build a new generator and connect it to transmission system under MISO functional control, what all do you need to submit to MISO? A. A signed, hard copy of Appendix 1: Application for Generator Interconnection and Attachments B. All M1 technical milestones C. A non-refundable application/feasibility study fee of $5,000 made out to MISO. D. A deposit to fund a D2 system impact study. E. Demonstration of site control OR an additional $100,000 deposit made out to MISO F. All of the Above 3. If you want to be up-to-date about queue process and study results, which stakeholder forum would you need to attend? Select all that apply. A. Market Congestion Planning Study Meeting B. Loss of Load Expectation Working Group C. Interconnection Process Task Force D. Individual Study Ad hoc group meeting E. Queue workshops F. Planning Advisory Committee April 21,

3 4. If you are part of the Generation Interconnection DPP study ad hoc group, what types of input would MISO need from you? Select all that apply. A. Model review B. Identify valid constraints C. Provide input on estimated cost and schedule D. Set study criteria 5. In one of the stakeholder meetings, MISO shared preliminary overloads identified in a DPP study: Overloaded Rating Contingency Distribution Factor A 100 N-1 Outage 10% 5 B 100 System Intact 10% 10 C 300 N-1 Outage 30% 25 D 300 System Intact 3% 60 Which one(s) are Injection constraints that will require Network Upgrades? MW Impact 6. In the subsequent stakeholder meetings, MISO shared additional overloads identified in the deliverability analysis (summer peak condition) in the study: Overloaded Rating Contingency Distribution Factor A 200 N-1 Outage 10% 10 B 200 System Intact 10% 5 C 300 N-1 Outage 30% 15 D 300 System Intact 3% 50 Which one(s) are deliverability constraints? MW Impact April 21,

4 7. In the subsequent stakeholder meetings, MISO shared additional overloads identified in the deliverability analysis (summer peak condition) in the study: Overloaded Rating Contingency Distribution Factor A 200 N-1 Outage 10% 10 B 200 System Intact 10% 5 C 300 N-1 Outage 30% 15 D 300 System Intact 3% 50 Which one(s) are deliverability constraints? MW Impact 8. In the final DPP System Impact Study report, the following Network Upgrades were listed as required by the generator. Which one of these will be primarily paid by the generators, and which ones are postage stamped to the load: A. An upgrade on an existing 230 kv facility B. Replacement of a 230/138 kv transformer C. A 345 kv new section of a transmission line D. A new wavetrap on a 161 kv line April 21,

5 Market Efficiency Project Exercise MISO identifies the following short and long-term opportunities. Draw lines that you think may be good opportunities. Congested Element Export Limited Import Limited April 21,

6 Here are some examples that we drew Which one do you think will provide the most benefits? Congested Element Export Limited Import Limited A. Line A B. Line B C. Line C D. Line D April 21,

7 At the next Economic Planning Users Group (EPUG) meeting MISO comes back with the following results: Project Voltage Cost (NPV) BAU - Production Cost Benefits (NPV) Benefit to Cost Ratio Notes A 230 $100 $ Completely Mitigated Congestion on Flowgate R B 230 $300 $ Minimal change in congestion patters C 500 $400 $ Completed Mitigated Congestion on Flowgate A, B, N, L, and W D 230 $150 $ Completed mitigated congestion on Flowgate A, N, and L Increased congestion on Flowgate B *Note: Costs put into 20 year Net Present Value (NPV) considers time value of money and annual revenue requirements What s the next iteration looking at these results? April 21,

8 Let s iterate: MISO goes back to the workshop and at the next meeting comes back with. Project Voltage Cost BAU - Production Benefit to Notes (NPV) Cost Benefits (NPV) Cost Ratio A 230 $100 $ Completely Mitigated Congestion of Flowgate R A2 230 $60 $ Partially Mitigated Congestion of Flowgate R C 500 $400 $ Completed Mitigated Congestion on Flowgate A, B, N, L, and W C2 500 $225 $ Partially mitigated congestion on W and A, completely mitigated B, N, and L D 230 $150 $ Completed mitigated congestion on Flowgate A, N, and L Increased congestion on Flowgate B D2 230 $175 $ Completely mitigated congestion on A, N, L, B Which is the most cost effective option? - Is it an MEP? o Voltage? Cost? B/C? April 21,

9 Option C2 looks good, but we need to make sure it doesn t harm the reliability of the system No Harm Reliability Testing Testing comes back and says we need to add $10 M worth of additional upgrades to this project in order to meet reliability criteria. Recalculate B/C Project Voltage Cost B/C (Nominal) C C D D Is the C2 project still the best option? Does it meet MEP criteria? April 21,

10 Multi-Value Project Exercises 1. A proposed transmission project starts off as a Multi-Value Project? A. True B. False 2. Select the criteria below that a Multi-Value Project must satisfy: A. Shown to enable the transmission system to deliver such energy in a manner that is more reliable and/or more economic than it otherwise would be without the transmission upgrade in order to reliably meet documented energy policy state or federal legislation or regulatory requirement B. Provides multiple types economic value across multiple pricing zones with a Total MVP benefit to cost ratio 1.0 or higher. C. Addresses projected violation of NERC or Regional Entity standard and must provide economic value across multiple pricing zones with Total MVP benefit to cost ratio 1.0 or higher. D. One or more above E. All of the above 3. Which criteria below is not a Multi-Value Projects cost allocation criteria: A. Must be evaluated as part of a portfolio of projects, whose benefits are spread broadly across the footprint B. The total capital cost for the transmission project must be greater than or equal to $20.0 million C. A Network Upgrades driven solely by an Interconnection Request in the MISO Generation Interconnection Procedures or Transmission Service Request D. None of the above April 21,
