Independent System Operator. An organization that operates an electric-transmission system that it does not own. Usually, the transmission system it operates includes transmission lines owned by more than one electric utility. An ISO's responsibilities include insuring that there is enough generation available at all times so that if one generating plant fails, others will pick up the load immediately without interrupting service to customers. Electric transmission systems do not have valves that can control the flow of electricity over the transmission lines. Therefore, an ISO operates the transmission system by controlling the amount of electricity that is generated at each point in the transmission system so that the transmission lines do not become over loaded. The abbreviation ISO sometimes refers to any ISO, and sometimes to refers to the California Independent System Operator.
