This paper explains the impacts and benefits of interoperability for electric system reliability. This is one of three interoperability benefits studies commissioned by the GridWise Architecture Council; while this paper addresses grid reliability, the others address the implications of inter-operability for the costs and economics, and for the environmental and resource use entailed by electricity production and use.
