Outage Planning

Outage Co-ordination is an essential part of managing the operation of the power system in a secure and efficient manner.

The Planned Outage Co-ordination Process (POCP) was agreed by the Planned Outage Forum in October 2002 and presented to the Grid Security Committee in November 2002.

A review of the POCP was completed in 2006, 2009 and 2013.

A POCP website has been established to host the outage database and a detailed User Guide.
