Title: Area of Interest 1. Interregional Electricity Reliability Issue and Assessment Analysis

In 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) tasked Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), in separate contracts, to provide coordinated technical support to the electricity industry for two national electricity reliability initiatives. The first initiative focused on improving the frequency response of each of the three North American interconnections. The second initiative focused on improving industry understanding of the causes and consequences of fault-induced delayed voltage recovery, which has been observed in all three interconnections. Both initiatives were conducted in close coordination with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and the Western Electric Coordination Council (WECC) and involved the participation of leading utilities from across the United States. This is the final report on LBNL’s activities. It consists of summaries of each activity, including references to published documents that were prepared through the course of the project. (Activities under taken by PNNL are reported on in a separate report.)
