In this response, we concentrate on Working Group 3 (Main Interconnected Transmission System), and in particular on the probabilistic and statistical modelling methods which might be employed in system planning. As this is an interim consultation for the MITS planning/wind integration part of the SQSS, with the main consultation on this area still to come, we confine ourselves to high level comments on the benefits of different philosophies for the future MITS planning standard (although we would be happy to discuss in more detail the latest thoughts from the Transmission Licensees as presented at the recent Industry Review Group meeting) More detail on our views regarding risk-based planning, and the history of system planning standards in GB, may be found in C.J. Dent et al, The Role of Risk Modelling in the Great Britain Transmission Planning and Operational Standards, Probability Methods Applied to Power Systems Conference, 2010.
