No Reliability Problems Seen for Winter

PJM’s assessment for the 2013-14 winter months identified no reliability issues, officials told the Operating Committee last week.

The annual assessment concluded the RTO has sufficient installed capacity to meet reserve requirements at the forecasted winter peak (about 136,000 MW) and that off-cost generation redispatch and switching will be sufficient to prevent thermal and voltage violations.

The assessment included a 50/50 peak load study — which assumes weather at average peak-day conditions — and an analysis of reactive transfer limits.
