    IntroductiontoCROW

    Southwest Power Pools CROW outage scheduler will be used by members of SPP to submit and coordinate transmission and generation outages. The SPP CROW application replaces the GEN_S and TRAN_S applications that have resided in SPPs OPS1 portal. CROW allows greater flexibility in order to meet each individual companys business needs related to outage coordination. Access to the transmission and/or generation information of each entity in the SPP CROW system is fully configurable based on each individual user account.

    OutageCoordinationMethodologyTablesAll of the following tables are referenced from SPP Criteria Appendix 12: Outage Coordination Methodology.

    OutagePriorities

    TransmissionOutagePriorities

    Priority Definition Minimum Lead Time

    Maximum Lead Time

    Planned Equipment is known to be operable with little risk of leading to a forced outage. As required for preventive maintenance, troubleshooting, repairs that are not viewed as urgent, system improvements such as capacity upgrades, the installation of additional facilities, or the replacement of equipment due to obsolescence.

    7 Days None

    Discretionary Equipment is known to be operable with little risk of leading to a forced outage; however the timeline for submission of Planned outage priority has passed. Discretionary outages are required to be submitted at least 2 calendar days in advance. Due to the shorter lead time, this outage priority has increased risk of being denied based upon higher priority outage requests.

    2 Days 7 Days

    Opportunity Lead time may be very short or zero. An outage that can be taken due to changed system conditions (i.e. Generator suddenly offline for forced outage allows transmission work to be done).

    None 7 Days

    Operational Equipment is removed from service for operational reasons such as voltage control, constraint mitigation as identified in an operating procedure, etc.

    None None

    Urgent Equipment is known to be operable, yet carries an increased risk of a forced outage or equipment loss. The equipment remains in service until maintenance crews are ready to perform the work.

    2 Hours 48 Hours

    Emergency Equipment is to be removed from service by operator as soon as possible because of safety concerns or increased risk to grid security.

    None 2 Hours

    Forced Equipment is out of service at the time of the request. None 1 Hour Figure 1: Transmission Outage Priorities

    OutageRequestTypes

    TransmissionOutageTypes

    Outage Request Type

    Definition Modeling Assumptions

    Out of Service (OOS)

    Equipment is out of service. SDX = Open EMS = Open

    Normally Open (NO)

    Equipment is normally out of service and is identified as normally open in the SPP regional models. Normally Open request type is used to close (place in service) a normally open facility.

    SDX = Closed EMS = Closed

    Informational (INF) Used for outage events that are not covered by one of the other Outage Equipment Request Types. Not an out of service event.

    None Informational Only

    Hot Line Work (HLW)

    Work is being performed on live or energized equipment. None Informational Only

    General System Protection (GSP)

    Work is being performed on protection systems. Requestor shall specifically identify protection systems out of service and any modification to operation or behavior of system contingencies.

    None Informational Only

    Request Type

    Definition Modeling Assumption

    Out of Service

    Generator or Resource is out of service. SDX = offline EMS = offline

    Derate Generator or Resource maximum capability is lowered from normal operation. A new maximum capability is required to be submitted with each Outage Request Type of Derate.

    SDX = online, with new lower PMAX EMS = online, with new lower PMAX
