16 Update on Activities of Other Groups 1345

17 Update on Activities of Other Groups
Board of Directors Joint Guidance Committee MIC, OC, PCC Seams Issues Subcommittee

18 NERC/NAESB ATC Drafting Team WECC Efforts 1355

19 FERC ATC NOPR The Commission Approved all of the ACT Suite
Subject to modification Issues a NOPR March 19, 2009 Created some “challenges” To MOD-29-01 Others 1919 19

20 FERC ATC NOPR Issue Spotting: MOD-29-01 “Remove” MOD-29-01 R2.7
Eliminate protection of Existing Path ratings 69 “Existing Rating” Paths in WECC Path Rating Catalogue Require re-rating Changes all contracts and models upon which the Existing Path ratings are predicated Compliance in “one year” questionable Need to respond WECC and multiple entities! 2020 20

21 FERC ATC NOPR Issue Spotting: “Mission Creep”
Make Implementation Documents available to broader range of entities “Mission Creep” Using NAESB Business Practices FERC has no jurisdiction over “non-jurisdictionals” Using Standards FERC can sweep in “non-jurisdictionals” Slippery slope Infusing non-reliability issues into reliability standards 2121 21

22 FERC ATC NOPR Issue Spotting: Counterflows
Would require greater detail in describing counter flows WECC uses “counter schedules” Issue Spotting: Treatment of Network Resource Designation Would require greater detail Ramifications to members are unclear 2222 22

23 FERC ATC NOPR Issue Spotting: Transparency Issue Spotting: TRM
FERC would require NERC Quickly audit the documents Replication of results is essential Issue Spotting: TRM FERC says “to vague” Lock down the ambiguities 2323 23

24 FERC ATC NOPR Informational VSL and VRF will be filed later
Process under review at NERC Can’t be lower than before drafting Must be consistently applied Based on a single violation and not on a cumulative number of violations 2424 24

25 FERC ATC NOPR Informational Other MODs and FAC NERC / FERC agree
Retire MODs 1-9; Changes top 10-25 Outside scope of the NERC ATC Drafting Team More work to come NERC / FERC disagree FERC says polish FAC-12 Keep FAC -13 MODs are “operational” (through 13 months) FACs are “planning” (14 months and beyond) 2525 25

64 MRTU Implementation Update 0800
Shultz & Sullivan

65 WECC Due Process Discussion 0820

66 “The Process” Focus on the Criteria
W. Shannon Black Manager, Business Practices and Standards Processes April 22, 2009 66

67 Process for Developing and Approving WECC Standards
Definitions “Standard” “In the context of this document, the term Standard refers to a Reliability Standard or a commercial Business Practice.” Commercial Business practices are treated the same as a Criterion Ramification Drafting a criterion looks just like a drafting a standard Criterion are expected to be followed 67

68 Measures and Compliance
 Criterion (Step 11 of the Process) “As of the effective date of such new or modified Standard, all industry participants in the Western Interconnection that such Standard is applicable to are expected to implement and abide by the Standard.” Without a measure how do we know? Compliance is being debated Not Raising the Bar Reminding WECC where the bar lies 68 68

69 Representation It’s Your Process – Use it!
Input into Standing Committee assignment Participate drafting / all are welcome Comment / Suggest remedies Be part of the answer Vote on the final product Submit comments again at the Standing Committee APPEAL! 69

70 Step 1 – Request To Revise or Develop a Standard
Must be “Complete” Are all the applicable blanks filled in? Is the issue clear to the uninitiated? Do the Applicable Entities have a corresponding Requirement? Extrinsic documents included? Is the goal of the work product clearly stated? If you personally cannot answer the questions, use a task force or work group 70

71 Step 1 – Request To Revise or Develop a Standard
Benchmark If you submitted the Request to NERC – what would be the result? Submitted to the “standards” address No other authorized medium for submission The Request defines the “drafting” scope of drafter’s authority Different from scope of the criterion 71

72 Scope Must be in “Scope” Mission
Does it support reliability of Western Interconnection? Does it support efficient competitive power markets? Does it support open and non-discriminatory transmission access among WECC members 72

73 Scope Mandates Magnitude
Does it violate any known NERC Reliability Standards? Does it violate any article of the WECC By-Laws? Does it violate any known existing regulatory mandate? (E.g. state or local laws and regulations) Magnitude Does this affect WECC only? Do we have authority to do it? Contravene or modify NERC or other mandates? 73

74 Step 2 – Request Validation and Routing
Assigned by SRRC to Standing Committee Input from the industry is requested and considered Drafting team vs. standing committee subgroup Announcements made to state the choice 74

75 Step 3 – Subgroup Begins Drafting Phase and Announces on WECC Web Site
Structure / Use the Templates Requirements Identify the Applicable Party Must use the Functional Model Identify the specific task Perhaps specify when, where and how Tasks must be in mandatory language / not subjective Measures Mirror the requirements / Some evidence Compliance Under debate 75

76 Steps 4 and 5: Draft and Deliberate
Step 4 – Posted for Comment First posting is 45-days – all others 30-days Step 5 – Deliberates on Comments Each and every comment must be answered A clear question evokes a clear answer Ask a friend “Do you understand my question?” Suggest a remedy Otherwise…the answer may create other issues you has not considered Use your peers 76

77 Step 6 – Subgroup Submits Draft for Standing Committee/Interested Stakeholder
Vote to bring to ballot Only a majority vote of the drafting team is required No quorum is stated “Must be present to win.” 77

78 Step 7 – Standing Committee Vote on Recommendation to Board
Vote to accept as drafted Remember your WECC role – for the Interconnection Check your philosophies Is you vote based on your own agenda or the best interests of the Interconnection? 78

79 Close it Out / For another Day
Step 8 – Appeals Process Step 9 – Board Approval Step 10 – ERO Review, FERC Approval and Implementation of Reliability Standards 79

80 Questions 80

81 Pre-schedule Process Regional Criteria Update 0840

82 Background Pre-schedule Process

88 MIS Charter Acceptance 0900 Tice

89 Amended MIS Charter Motion:
The MIS accepts the Charter as presented to the Subcommittee at its April 21, 2009 meeting. The MIS chair is instructed to present the Charter to the MIC for approval at its next meeting.

90 Discussion of VGS Marketing Work Group Work Plan
0915 Tice

91 VGS Organization VGS formed by Joint Guidance Committee.
Vehicle to coordinate work by Committees and Subcommittees on VG. Develop recommendations for reliable and cost effective methods of integrating VG. Four Work Groups. Operating. Planning. Marketing. Technology.

92 VGS Identified Issues Ensure the VGS is aware of and participates in relevant NERC and NAESB activities Energy delivery capacity, and generation scheduling of VG resources Effects of a REC market on VG placements, energy marketing, and system reliability. Ancillary service requirements, and new and/or enhanced delivery mechanisms

93 Work Group Collaboration

94 Marketing WG Activities
Follow and report on NAESB activities Investigate transmission capacity assignment for VG resources Investigate firm scheduling of VG resources Evaluate the impacts of REC markets Determine ancillary service requirements and Investigate new approaches to address how ancillary services will be supplied for VGVGS formed by Joint Guidance Committee. Due process and broad WECC membership approval. NERC holidays “special days”

95 Marketing WG Activities
Follow pertinent NAESB Activities. Initial thoughts? NAESBWG liaison What topics of interest to MWG Demand side management Real time NAESB activities. NAESBWG assemble list of possible items of interest to MWG.

96 Marketing WG Activities
Determine how VG resources on a transmission network be assigned transmission capacity when their output is variable? Collaborate with PWG, OWG, & MIC. Initial thoughts? EPC for capacity tag for VG. Explore capacity tags for other than CR. Is this from perspective of TC or TP. Competition between types of VG resources..

97 Marketing WG Activities
Determine what portion of VG resources should be counted as firm? Create a reporting standard and come up with a number. Collaborate with MIC. Initial thoughts? Does this really mean capacity? What does firm mean to this WG? What is the mix of the VG resources? Market vs planning, which perspective here? Nameplate vs usable? Reporting to who and for what?

98 Marketing WG Activities
Determine how a robust REC market affect VG placement, energy marketing, and system reliability? Collaborate with OWG, & MIC. Initial thoughts? Federal requirement vs state and reporting? Explore how REC market will effect negative energy pricing.. Identify how REC may affect or influence markets and operations.

99 Marketing WG Activities
How will regulation, load following, and balancing requirements (Ancillary Services) change and how will they be supplied and delivered for variable generation integration? Collaborate with OWG, & MIC. Initial thoughts? DSS help with AS; stay coordinated JI efforts. Does the WG anticipate new AS? If so what? AS delivered to meet load not to VG. At what point can CR be called for VG? Will there be standards for response or voluntary? Will BA look for other ways to obtain negative capacity? AS provided by market rather than BA? More robust inc/dec market.

100 Marketing WG Activities
MIS comments to MWG.

101 Break 1000

102 ISAS Liaison Update Report to the MIS Update 1020

103 BPWG Create a SAR to require the R/C to approve/deny tags instead of just the sink BA. Assign BPWG with the task of creating a tag that can be faxed or ed. Establish whether e-tag approval can be done by phone. NEW Term: WIAB WECC Interchange Authority Back-up Group.

104 RTWG Support for SAR request for intra hour scheduling?
Each provider will have to decide for themselves. JIU will discuss with the FERC in May. It was suggested that the group needed to use peer pressure to pass intra hour scheduling. Where s the MIS going to go with this issue? Are they going to put out a SAR for intra hour schedule?

105 INT-BPS-007-0 Modification Request of INT-BPS-007-0
Intend to resubmit the SAR and capitalize the word Emergency. Relate to the NERC term for Emergency. Resubmit this BPS and resubmit SAR from a year ago. Support for SAR request for intra hour scheduling?

106 JISWG Update Shared working group for NERC and NAESB.
Version of eTag is a clean up of picky items, definition changes with no apparent functionality changes to the user specifications. Changes to support a 25 hour day. CISDT will also require changes to etag. Modified cancellation definition.

107 JISWG Update Industry registry: Current registry is the NERC TSIN.
EIR will add adjacency data and PKI certification data. Easier to use and NAESB is NAESB new caretaker;to issue RFP for EIR. Public key infrastructure (PKI) provides business certainty and secure communications. It is dependent on EIR implementation and the NAESB certification committee. Consult with your vendor. Change from your url from "http" to "https" in the NERC TSIN registry.

108 JISWG Update NAESB CI BP standards are the commercial NAESB interactions between PSE's and PSE's and PSE's and Reliability Entities. NERC Interchange standards will have stay in step with NAESB as the CISDT changes them.

109 Dynamic Scheduling Systems
The DSS allows participants to take advantage of load and resource diversity. Ability to implement dynamic schedules between BA's. Populated with data from confirmed Dynamic-type tags E tags will be coded using the "misc." field to correctly distribute requests. Currently you can curtail dynamic schedules and nothing happens it takes operator intervention with this DSS will take curtailment actions. Quantities will be reflected in the WIT and integrate after the hour and adjust tag for the previous hour. RFP May 12, 2009; Contract award 6/30/09;Implementation Q1 2010 BA to BA DSS only; will not currently support pseudo-tie.

110 Questions.

111 Role of Committee and Subcommittees as Interface to the Market on Variable Generation 1035

112 Recommendation to the MIC
Build on activities already started: VGS liaison. Relationships with outside groups. Membership involvement in outside groups. Education of MIC and Subcommittee members.

113 Recommendation to the MIC
Advance these issues: Develop a process for Committee and Subcommittee interaction with VGS. (Steering) Monitor implementation of JIG BP and debate issues with WECC wide implementation. (MIS & SIS) Identify major topics that need TC, TP discussion. (MIS & SIS) Identify existing “rules” that may impede intra hour VG and load service transactions. (MIS & SIS)

114 Recommendation to the MIC
When should MIC and Subcommittees begin advancing issues at WECC level? Who will identify issues? How does MIC prioritize issues? Resources to accomplish tasks?
