Transfer Capability Analysis

The transmission provider or regional transmission operator (RTO) may require an assessment of the impact of the proposed generator on the transfer capability of the network. Transfer capability is a measure of the transmission system’s ability to transfer power across constrained interfaces. It is the basis for allocating transmission use for wheeling and inter-area exchanges. The required analysis is similar to a combination of steady state and stability assessments, with an additional analysis for shifting dispatches. POWER-tek can provide clients with transfer capability analysis that they may need for technical regulatory compliance with their RTO.
