BPA Outage Coordination
BPA Outage Coordination Policy
BPA has an Outage Coordination Policy that requires specific equipment to be coordinated within certain timelines. BPA will be using Peak Reliability’s Coordinated Outage System (COS) to coordinate Outage Plans. BPA needs planned outage information to support Operational Planning studies and will be requesting equipment and facility outage information from other utilities. This meets Peak’s Outage Coordination Process for Balancing Authorities and Transmission Operators.
Appendix 2 (the Equipment List) and Appendix 5 of the Policy are located on Peak Reliability’s secure website at the following link:
Select the Operations tab, scroll down, and select the TOP-003 Data Library. The Outage Policy, including Appendix 2 and Appendix 5 are located in BPA’s Procedural folder.

 File Type (.mpp)


Outage plans are posted as Microsoft Project files (.mpp), to allow sorting of data and the display of Gantt charts.

B​PA has changed the supported encryption protocols.
