Underfrequency Load Shedding Report Jerry Rust WECC October 21, 2010
NERC PRC WECC Consolidated Coordinated Plan Recommendations
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – WECC Focus Preserve the existing WECC Consolidated Coordinated Plan - Variance Applicable to Correct Entity UFLS entities – responsible for the ownership, operation, or control of UFLS equipment (WECC-0065 Criterion)
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – WECC Focus WECC Consolidated Coordinated UFLS Plan 13-page document posted for 30 days September 22, 2010 – closes October 22, 2010 Response to comments due back November 21, 2010 Is it complete? Did we miss something or miss-quote something?
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – WECC Focus Some issues within the approved standard may cause WECC OC and PCC to re-think implementation M.E.B.12. Each Planning Coordinator shall have dated evidence such as reports, data gathered from an historical event, or other dated documentation to show that it participated in a UFLS design assessment per Requirements E.B.12 and E.B.4 if UFLS program deficiencies are identified in E.B.11
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – WECC Focus E.B.11 Each Planning Coordinator in whose area a BES islanding event results in system frequency excursions below the initializing set points of the UFLS program, shall participate in and document a coordinated event assessment with all affected Planning Coordinators to conduct and document an assessment of the event within one year of event actuation to evaluate: E.B The performance of the UFLS equipment E.B The effectiveness of the UFLS program
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – WECC Focus So what does this mean Compare to the simulations that established the plan and determine if the actual event did not match the simulations – why? What is wrong? What changed? Etc. Does WECC have the simulation model that establish the plan – in the past an ad-hoc group does the simulation analysis. It is maintained and updated? Is it an operating case with reflection of reserve?
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – Recommendation WECC form a permanent group to maintain the simulation model and to be able to run a comparison analysis in the event it needs to be done. (maintain some kind of continuity of personnel) Reports to the JGC Event Analysis has been under OC in the past
Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding – Implementation Effective one year following the first day of the first calendar quarter after applicable regulatory approvals. January 1, 2011 anticipated date Finish WECC-0065 Address where and whom to maintain simulation
