Studies associated with the interconnection of dynamically active transmission devices have been included in the NYISO's interconnection process and periodic transmission planning/operating studies on an ad-hoc basis.Based on the proliferation of inverter-based resources, as well as applications of active-series/shunt compensation and HVDC connections to the NYCA system, it is proposed to include a requirement for special studies in the NYSRC Reliability Rules.
