Reliability Assessment and Performance Analysis
Texas Reliability Entity, Inc.'s (Texas RE) Reliability Assessment and Performance Analysis (RAPA) program provides input to seasonal and long-term reliability assessments for the adequacy of resources and operating reliability of the bulk power system (BPS) in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) Region, as well as review of system events and disturbances that impact the ERCOT Region BPS.
NERC Long-Term Reliability Assessment
Long-Term Reliability Assessments annually assess the adequacy of the bulk electric system in the United States and Canada over a ten-year period. The report projects electricity supply and demand, evaluates transmission system adequacy, and discusses key issues and trends that could affect reliability.
Summer and Winter Assessment
Summer and Winter Assessments assess the adequacy of electricity supplies in the United States and Canada for the upcoming summer and winter peak demand periods.
NERC State of Reliability Report
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) 2012 State of Reliability report represents NERC’s independent view of ongoing bulk power system reliability trends to objectively analyze the state of reliability based on metric information and provide an integrated view of reliability performance. The key findings and recommendations serve as technical input to NERC’s Reliability Standards and project prioritization, compliance process improvement, event analysis, reliability assessment, and critical infrastructure protection. This analysis of bulk power system performance not only provides an industry reference for historical bulk power system reliability, it also offers analytical insights towards industry action, and enables the discovery and prioritization of specific actionable risk control steps.
