RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS
SERC’s Reliability Assessment and Performance Analysis (RAPA) program provides Bulk Electric System (BES) analysis, data gathering, and analysis of events in order to identify BES reliability risks in the SERC footprint.
REGISTRATION & CERTIFICATION
Bulk power system owners, operators, and users that meet certain criteria are required to register with NERC. Once registered, a registered entity must verify its registration on an annual basis with SERC. An important part of the criteria used in determining if registration is required is the NERC BES Definition. In addition, the registered entities that are registered for the Reliability Coordinator (RC), Balancing Authority (BA), and Transmission Operator (TOP) are also required to be certified.
