Seminar Task Force
ERCOT hosts an annual seminar to provide a forum for system-wide problems to be effectively addressed and to maintain consistency in operator training across all ERCOT’s system operating entities. This forum also provides an opportunity for ERCOT’s system operators to meet and analyze common topics and issues. The Seminar Task Force (STF) is responsible for providing input to ERCOT regarding the planning and organization of the annual seminar.
The STF reports to the Operations Working Group (OWG) and consists of operations and training representatives from Transmission and/or Distribution Service Providers (TDSPs), Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs), Resource Entities, ERCOT, and other interested parties.
The Reliability and Operations Subcommittee (ROS) chair, with ROS confirmation, approves the STF chair as recommended by OWG.
The STF chair schedules meetings as required to discharge its responsibilities and has the authority to coordinate all seminar related activities.
When consensus cannot be achieved on an issue, it shall be presented to OWG for disposition.
