Outage Coordination Working Group

The primary responsibility of the OCWG is to develop, on an annual basis, a list of High Impact Transmission Elements ("HITEs") as discussed in ERCOT’s HITE methodology document. The Working Group’s functions can be described as follows:

  • Review ERCOT’s annually-prepared seed list of outages likely to result in high congestion costs that they will receive specific categorization and treatment by ERCOT;
  • Finalize this list through a stakeholder input and review process to account for upgrades and other system changes that would affect the predictive value of the list;
  • Periodically review the ERCOT HITE methodology document for any necessary updates or changes.
