4 Regulation Refresher Generating Units are set up to Receive Signals From an EMS AGC placed on Regulation. Generating Units are set up to Receive Signals From an EMS AGC placed on Regulation. WASN Provides 27 MW of Regulation for LSE Control Performance and another 33 MW’s to manage SBA Control Performance Requirements which equates to 60 MW’s of Regulation in the Up and Down Direction. WASN Provides 27 MW of Regulation for LSE Control Performance and another 33 MW’s to manage SBA Control Performance Requirements which equates to 60 MW’s of Regulation in the Up and Down Direction. Inadvertent payback is limited to 10 MW (+) or (-). Inadvertent payback is limited to 10 MW (+) or (-). Transmission loss forecast errors vary, but can be anywhere from 10 MW to as much as 50 MW. This Variance is Normally Driven by Market Conditions Transmission loss forecast errors vary, but can be anywhere from 10 MW to as much as 50 MW. This Variance is Normally Driven by Market Conditions 4

5 Regulation Reduction Pilot Test Conclusions The Pilot Test Provided Enough Data to Support the Reduction of Regulating Margins During Certain Timeframes and Western’s Ability to Maintain Reliable Operation of the Western SBA The Test Also Indicated that the Requirements for Regulation are not Flat and Vary With System Conditions 5

6 Regulation Reduction Pilot Test Conclusions The Pilot Test Results and Supplemental Studies by Operations Indicate that There are Additional Hours Where Regulation May be Reduced and Still Maintain Reliable Operation of the Western SBA The Pilot Test Results and Supplemental Studies by Operations Indicate that There are Additional Hours Where Regulation May be Reduced and Still Maintain Reliable Operation of the Western SBA Western Will Coordinate with the USBR to Examine Those Hours and Times When this May be Possible Western Will Coordinate with the USBR to Examine Those Hours and Times When this May be Possible 6

7 Future Regulation Pilot Test Propose Another Pilot Test Beginning on or about Oct. 1, 2011 Propose Another Pilot Test Beginning on or about Oct. 1, 2011 Test to Include a Reduction in Up and Down Regulation Test to Include a Reduction in Up and Down Regulation Test to Run for Approximately 180 Days, Concluding on or about March 31, 2012 Test to Run for Approximately 180 Days, Concluding on or about March 31, 2012 Western Will use 60 MW of Up and Down Regulation as the Base Requirement Western Will use 60 MW of Up and Down Regulation as the Base Requirement Test Will Use Varying Levels of Reduced Up and Down Regulation. Test Will Use Varying Levels of Reduced Up and Down Regulation. 7

16 Preliminary Study Conclusions Initial Data Suggests that that Loss Forecast Error and Net Interchange Deviations (Exports) Require More Detailed Analysis Initial Data Suggests that that Loss Forecast Error and Net Interchange Deviations (Exports) Require More Detailed Analysis Regulation Usage Patterns are Seasonal Regulation Usage Patterns are Seasonal LSE Deviation (Regulation Usage) is Relatively Neutral, Both + and – LSE Deviation (Regulation Usage) is Relatively Neutral, Both + and – There is opportunity to reduce the Amount of Regulation Necessary to Maintain Reliability There is opportunity to reduce the Amount of Regulation Necessary to Maintain Reliability 16

17 Next Steps Analyze the Large Volume of Data in More Detail Analyze the Large Volume of Data in More Detail Incorporate the Lessons Learned From the Regulation Pilot Test into SNR Daily Operations and the Next Proposed Pilot Test Incorporate the Lessons Learned From the Regulation Pilot Test into SNR Daily Operations and the Next Proposed Pilot Test GOAL: Reliably Reduce SBA Regulation Requirements in Both the Up and Down Direction GOAL: Reliably Reduce SBA Regulation Requirements in Both the Up and Down Direction 17
