Abstract:

The Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) is the Regional Entity responsible for coordinating and promoting bulk electric system reliability in the Western Interconnection. WECC and its members manage the operation and planning of the vast interconnected transmission system connecting generators and loads across almost 1.8 million square miles of territory. The Western Interconnection Synchrophasor Program (WISP), led by WECC and involving 18 partners, is an initiative to modernize operation of the transmission system in the Western Interconnection, increasing reliability and system performance, and enabling greater use of renewable resources such as solar, hydro, and wind.
