NERC publishes reports that analyze the performance of the North American Bulk Electric System. Currently, an annual review is published, the State of Reliability Report, which analyzes the historical risks to the Bulk Electric System with a view toward developing a risk-based approach to solving important Bulk Electric System problems. Prior to publishing the State of Reliability Report, NERC was publishing an annual Risk Assessment of Reliability Performance Report.
An area of concern in the industry is the rate of misoperations, hence NERC staff has also published a report since 2014 to review industry trends.
The Performance Analysis Subcommittee (PAS) provides input and oversees the development activities of the Performance Analysis team. The PAS also supports the activities of the working groups.
