On September 18, 2018, select members of the TPS met with their transmission counterparts (the Task Force System Studies) from the NPCC region in Halifax, Nova Scotia. A few of the topics discussed during this meeting were grid resiliency, distributed energy resources, and variable generation resources.

The TPS more recently met in Newark, NJ on October 23-24. During this meeting, the TPS reviewed results fromvarious transmission studies performed by ReliabilityFirst staff. PJM and MISO presented their analysis of the upcoming 2018-19 winter season. Also, there was a presentation given by PJM on a method for preforming a probabilistic cascading analysis. finally, a discussion about how to model Geomagnetic Disturbances (GMD) was discussed.

In addition to monthly conference calls, the next face-to-face TPS meeting is scheduled for the week of May 6 and will include a joint meeting with the RF Protection Subcommittee.
