CSC/CRE Technical Review 6 October 2008
2 Outline Review the process used in calculating Power Transfer Distribution Factors (PTDFs). Information posted at: CRE recommendations distributed on October 3 rd.
3 6 October 2008 PTDF vs. GSF Power Transfer Distribution Factors (PTDFs) represent the percent of power transfer that flows on a transmission facility. PTDFs are used to estimate the change in flows that occur from a particular transfer and identifying which elements are impacted by the transfer. Generator Shift Factors (GSFs) represent the change in flow on an element as a result of increasing generation at a node. GSFs are more useful in identifying the generator pairs that can impact a specific element. Both PTDF and GSFs can be calculated using similar assumptions. Source:
4 6 October 2008 PTDF process For each of the CSC Scenarios 3b, 3i, and 3h - ERCOT coordinated Market Participant resources to assist in the calculation of PTDFs for each scenario PowerWorld and Excel were used as the tools to calculate PTDFs for base case and contingencies of CSCs and CREs. For the Base Case and each pair of contingency-monitored elements, the 3 plants with highest of GSFs for both directions were identified to review whether local solutions were feasible.

6 6 October 2008 ERCOT’s CRE recommendations ERCOT based it’s CRE recommendations on the results generated by the test outlined in Protocols Section ERCOT is also permitted by the Protocols to select CREs that can provide improved operational control. In determining whether a CRE provides improved operational control ERCOT reviewed the PTDF results and the location of the CRE.
