As the 2025 deadline for meeting FERC Order 881 draws near, transmission operators need proven solutions to address the complex new requirements. PCI’s LRMS software (Line Rating Management System software) enables automated and auditable compliance through the following key capabilities:
- Data integration from weather stations, EMS, and other sources
- Hourly ambient-adjusted ratings determination
- Central storage for simplified auditing
- Streamlined submissions to RTOs/market operators
- Visual summaries with pattern recognition
In our recent webinar, we provided an exclusive first look at LRMS software specifically built for 881 requirements. Read on for a recap and demo overview.

PCI transmission experts guided attendees through core functionality of the LRMS system, including the following.
Visual line rating summaries
The system generates clear hourly summaries of ratings across transmission circuits for the next 10 days. Color-coded bands indicate threshold violations for easy pattern recognition. Users can toggle between rating types and check supporting data.
GIS mapping and weather integration
LRMS leverages connected geographical information system (GIS) data to overlay transmission line details onto regional maps. With GIS mapping, users can drill down to see specific circuit ratings and corroborate with local weather data.
Automated reporting and submissions
As calculations complete, the software auto-generates required regulatory reports on exceptions or methodology. Bulk data bundles simplify sharing with RTOs and other entities through APIs or batch uploads.
Purpose-built for FERC Order 881
Designed by transmission management experts, LRMS guides users through:
- Establishing rating methodologies
- Setting up thresholds and validations
- Importing data from relevant modeling systems
- Automating hourly ratings adjustment
- Managing storage and access requirements
The system adapts as compliance requirements evolve — providing value into the future.
