Planning Center

Planning Center is PJM’s planning tool, which is made up of a suite of modules that allow members to work with data required for long-range planning studies.

Competitive Planner

Competitive Planner makes it easier for transmission owners and transmission developers to submit proposals through PJM’s competitive transmission development process windows. Previously developers would need to fill out an Excel file that would then be uploaded securely. It provides an interactive form that allows developers to provide information more easily and accurately, while also securely submitting that information to PJM from a single location.

Gen Model

The Gen Model module lets generation owners upload the required data for NERC’s MOD-032-1 standard. This standard establishes consistent modeling data requirements and reporting procedures needed to develop planning horizon models. These models are necessary to support reliability analyses of the transmission system.

Queue Point

Queue Point allows interconnection customers to submit new interconnection requests, as well as to make changes to existing requests.

Failing to submit a complete interconnection request and/or missing the various interconnection request due dates as set forth in the Open Access Transmission Tariff may result in your interconnection request being terminated and withdrawn. Please see Part IV of the Tariff WEB | PDF for interconnection request submittal and/or deficiency review details.

Queue Scope

Queue Scope is an interconnection screening tool that enables users to evaluate placement of future generators even before formally entering the PJM queue. The tool screens potential points of interconnection (POI) on the PJM system by assessing grid impacts and estimating grid congestion based on the amount of MW injection or withdrawal at a given POI. The results of the tool are informational in nature and provide users with the capability to run the analysis in either a public or secure platform. Use of the Queue Scope tool and the results thereof are subject to the Legal Disclaimer below.

Disclaimer Notice

The PJM Queue Scope tool (“Queue Scope”) is intended to provide Interconnection Customers and other interested parties (“Users”) with estimates of grid congestion at the given points of interconnection within the PJM footprint. Queue Scope is an informational tool and is not intended to be a substitute for actual interconnection studies conducted by PJM as part of the PJM interconnection process. Queue Scope results are not reflective of current PJM system conditions, and may not account for all study assumptions and considerations that would otherwise be considered in the formal interconnection study process. Queue Scope only addresses thermal impacts on the system and it does not include voltage, stability, or short circuit constraints. Queue Scope and the Queue Scope data is provided “as is” and PJM hereby disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise. PJM specifically disclaims all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement, and all warranties arising from course of dealing, usage, or trade practice.

At any time, and for any lawful purpose, PJM may monitor, intercept, record and search any communications or data transiting or stored on Queue Scope. At PJM’s sole discretion, PJM may disclose pertinent information to the U.S. Government and its authorized representatives to protect the security of critical infrastructure and key resources, ensure information security, or to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request. Users expressly consent to the terms and conditions contained in this Disclaimer Notice. Users have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding communications or data transiting or stored on Queue Scope. Unauthorized use of Queue Scope may be subject to criminal prosecution or civil proceedings.
