Planning and designing a 21st century grid takes experience and expertise in addressing the varying system needs across regions, variable resources and locations, load impacts and efficiencies across the complex transmission grid that exists today. In order to function as a true network across the seams that currently separate different regions, the grid must be planned in such a way that it is both resilient and efficient to meet our energy needs now and in the future.
Effective grid planning is the key to building a transmission grid that serves today's 21st-century energy needs. Local and regional plans developed by ITC are evaluated through an independent process governed by the respective RTO.
ITC leverages a variety of software technologies as part of our approach to grid planning and engineering, including PSSE, PROMOD, Python Tools, TARA, GridView, Velocity Suite and EMTP-RV.
