SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed information collection in Docket No. RD14–5–000 relates to the proposed Reliability Standards MOD– 032–1 (Data for Power System Modeling and Analysis) and MOD–033–1 (SteadyState and Dynamics System Model Validation), developed by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and submitted to the Commission for approval. NERC’s petition related to the proposed Reliability Standards MOD–032–1 and MOD–033–1 was approved on May 1, 2014, pursuant to the relevant authority delegated to the Director, Office of Electric Reliability under 18 CFR 375.303. Reliability Standard MOD–032–1 consolidates NERC-approved Reliability Standards MOD–011–0, MOD–013–1 and MOD–014–0, as well as, Commission approved Reliability Standards MOD–010–0 and MOD–012– 0, into one standard.1 Reliability Standard MOD–032–1 requires data submission by applicable data owners to their respective transmission planners and planning coordinators to support the interconnection model building process in their interconnection. Reliability Standard MOD–033–1 is a new standard that requires each planning coordinator to implement a documented process to perform model validation within its planning area. The purpose of the Reliability Standards is to establish comprehensive modeling data requirements, reporting procedures, and validation requirements necessary to accurately model the interconnected transmission system for the near-term transmission planning horizon and the long-term transmission planning horizon.
