In today’s complex electric system, power system data is a vital but sensitive aspect of reliable Bulk Electric System (BES) operation. Consequently, it is critical that operating entities have access to key data to allow the operating entity to reliably operate the system. The Reliability Coordinator (RC), as the functional entity with the highest authority to maintain the real-time operating reliability of the BES, must have real-time data to perform its duties under the NERC Functional Model. The NERC Standards require that operating entities share operating data with the RC.
