The three GB transmission licensees have been involved in research work to look at how the Main Interconnected Transmission System (MITS) planning rules in Section 4 of the GB Security and Quality of Supply Standards (GB SQSS) should be adapted or changed to make provision for the increasing volume of wind generation connected to the network.

At this stage it is very important to test the proposed planning rule thoroughly, as it could have a considerable impact on the level of transmission capital expenditure by the transmission licensees if it is adopted for the GB SQSS.

The aim of Phase 1 of this project is to carry out further studies to ensure that the proposed planning method is robust. Also, further work in Phase 2 is to be carried out to consider the implications of the rule on generation market access and facilitation of competition in this market.
