2Overview Basic plan for the FT FT document – what’s new/different Roles & responsibilitiesReadiness - EMS changes?Data reportingEvaluationQuestions
3Who, what, when, where, how, why All of us – BAs, RC, PWG, SDTMonitor, act, collect, report, analyze, summarizeMarch 1, 2010 – February 28, 2011Real-time & HistoricalEMS Changes? Monitoring Tools?Support the SDT and for “our” benefit
4FT Document – Major Changes Version 4 vs Version 8Potentially obfuscating changes have been addressed\ATEC is now a standardADI references have been removedReferences to AGC status, suspension of control, response to BAAL violations have been revisedRevised Timeline – start date & milestonesEvaluation criteria expanded to monitor all pathsLoosened verification of BA operator readinessAdditional data collection/reporting to address WECC concerns
5Who-WhatAll BAs with Peak Load or Max Gen > 500 MW must participateAll BAs must be able to meet the data collection reporting requirements in Appendix A.ACE, Frequency related clock-minute valuesCount minutes in different violation categoriesAll BAs will control to meet BAL-001 and BAL-007While CPS2 is waived, it must still be calculatedBAL-007 – a frequency based ACEclock-min limit (BAAL) with a 30 min time limitBAs must still continue to calculate and report all NERC required quantities.
6How-WhyNo EMS modifications are required and BAs may “loosen” control within limits“Loosen” control will differ depending on softwareBAs can modify their EMS – if they wishBAs can self-implement the BAAL calculation and monitoring of ACE or use tools provided by the SDTThe SDT tools are for monitoring only and reference the ACE history (e.g. a PI database)BAs verify to PWG that Operators are trained in RBCSupport the SDT in assessment of RBCConsider in WECC control metrics that reflect VGS
7When - timeline August 2009 – Workshop September 2009 October 2009 PWG posts updated FT documentBAs begin preparing for FTOctober 2009OC approves the FT plan and documentOC posts the FT plan for Board approvalDecember 2009Board approves FT plan
8When – timeline continued January 2010PWG conducts final workshop or conference call (TBD)RC certify readinessFebruary 2010BAs annual update of frequency bias termsBAs certify readinessBAs forward 2 weeks of FT data to PWG/WECCRC certifies all BAs are providing requisite dataPWG forwards list of participating BAs to SDT for CPS2 compliance waiverPWG announces commencement of FTMarch 2010FT begins 03/01/ :00:00 CST3/15/2010 – BAs submit two weeks of data
9When – timeline continued April 2010 – March 2011BAs submit dataBAs note and describe circumstances where ACE exceed BAAL for more than 10 or 20 consecutive clock-minutesPWG / SDT conference call and review of BA dataOpen conference call – BAs may participateConsider enhancements/improvements to the FT
