The purpose of this study and report is to:

  • Demonstrate that modeling the CAISO system with considerations for Intertie Scheduling Constraints ( ITCs) would better reflect actual market conditions than the traditional approach of only modeling physical constraints
  • Demonstrate the potential for incorporating ITCs into CAISO transmission planning process by applying such methods/tools to the ISO’s 2016/2017 TPP dataset
  • Capture scheduling congestion on the order of magnitude of observed levels of day-ahead congestion, particularly on the northern ITCs of NOB and Malin
  • Identify additional updates/modifications to the transmission planning assumptions that could result in a more accurate representation of ITC congestion
