Siemens to assist Western Electricity Coordinating Council with transmission data

Schenectady, N.Y., March 27, 2012 — Siemens Power Technologies International announced an agreement with the Western Electricity Coordinating Council to deliver WECC's Base Case Coordination System planning tool.

The BCCS solution, based on Siemens PTI's Model on Demand software product, will improve the collection and compilation of WECC data used to build their transmission system study models.

With the project scheduled for completion in December 2012, the BCCS will enable WECC and its members to streamline data collection and the case building effort in the region.

The BCCS provides a means to create a nearly infinite number of scenario cases and could save the average WECC member an estimated 12 to 15 weeks of labor per year.

The centralized database within the BCCS solution also ensures model data consistency, data accuracy and provides tracking and data logging to comply with North American Electric Reliability Corporation standards.
