August 2019 – Tour at AEP Transmission Operation Center

We had a wonderful event with a great support from AEP Transmission Operation Center. Good presentations for Transmission reliability operations & dispatches and introductions to the control room functionalities. Appreciate who attended this tour and AEP leadership (Mr. Dave Ball and Mr. Dave Browning).

The SCC provides real-time monitoring of the transmission grid and communicates with the Regional Transmission Organizations and the TDCs that provide real-time dispatching operations of the transmission system. Note that the attendees are suggested to be arriving at the security gate by 5:15 pm with a government issued ID. Also note that there will no PDH provided for this tour.
