LPGRR032Profile Decision Tree Changes for Advanced MetersThis change specifies a meter data type assignment of ‘IDR’ and a Profile Segment assignment other than ‘IDRRQ’ for Electric Service Identifiers (ESI IDs) with Advanced Meters. For ESI IDs that have a meter data type of IDR (includes Advanced Meters and IDRs), the default weather sensitivity code assignment is changed to ‘weather sensitive’. For simplicity, this change treats all ESI IDs that have a meter data type of ‘IDR’ in the same manner. The default weather sensitivity code assignment is not retroactive.10/10/2008NoAppendix D: Profile Decision TreeApproved01/01/2009
LPGRR033Synchronization of Load Profiling Guide with PRR804, Revisions to Section 21 Appeal ProcessThis Load Profiling Revision Request (LPGRR) revises Section 2 to provide that if a motion to approve a revision request fails, the revision request shall be deemed rejected by the body considering it and subject to appeal, unless at the same meeting that body later votes to recommend approval, remand or refer the revision request. This LPGRR also propose formatting and administrative changes.05/14/2009No2, Load Profiling Revision Request ProcessApproved10/01/2009
LPGRR034Profile Model Spreadsheets - Calendar Extension and Delete Unused ModelsThis Load Profiling Revision Request (LPGRR) replaces version 2.2 of the profile model spreadsheets in Appendix E, with version 2.3. This update extends the variables on the Calendar, Holidays, and Sun tabs of all applicable load profile model spreadsheets 10 years - from the current maximum of 2010 to 2020. The variables in question are used by ERCOT in the generation of forecasted and backcasted Load Profiles. This change also deletes the BUSIDRRG and RESIDRRG profile model spreadsheets, which were approved but never implemented due to changes in how Profile IDs are assigned for sites that have Advanced Metering.06/24/2009NoAppendix E: Profile Model SpreadsheetsApproved11/01/2009
LPGRR035Addition of Time Of Use Schedules (TOUS) to Profiles with Interval Data Recorder (IDR) Meter Data Type Codes for Advanced MetersThis LPGRR revises the Profile Decision Tree to include Profile IDs that allow Time Of Use Schedules (TOUS) for AMS meters. When 15-minute interval settlement begins for AMS meters, the meter data type codes for Electric Service Identifiers (ESI IDs) with AMS meters will be converted to Interval Data Recorders (IDRs). This request enables ESI IDs with AMS meters to have IDR meter data type codes and Oncor’s TOUS (TOU01, TOU02, and TOU13). It also allows AMS meters with Oncor TOUS to remain Non-Interval Data Recorder (Non-IDR) until such time as the proposed Profile IDs are implemented by ERCOT.09/14/2009YesAppendix D: Profile Decision TreeApproved04/17/2010
LPGRR036Delete Document Control SectionThis Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) deletes Section 1.1 from the Load Profiling Guide (LPG).12/30/2009No1.1 (delete)Approved05/01/2010
LPGRR037Replace Wording Truncated from LPGRR035This Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) revises the Profile Decision Tree to include wording that was truncated by Microsoft Excel 2003© during the processing of LPGRR035, Addition of Time Of Use Schedules (TOUS) to Profiles with Interval Data Recorder (IDR) Meter Data Type Codes for Advanced Meters, before LPGRR035 was approved. Some of the truncated wording was from a previously-approved version of the Profile Decision Tree, while proposed wording was truncated as well. The proposed wording that was truncated was related to allowing Electric Service Identifiers (ESI IDs) with Advanced Metering Service (AMS) meters to have IDR meter data type codes and Oncor’s TOUS (TOU01, TOU02, and TOU13). It also allows AMS meters with Oncor TOUS to remain non-IDR until such time as the proposed Load Profile IDs are implemented by ERCOT.12/30/2009YesAppendix DApproved04/17/2009
LPGRR038Revisions for Texas Nodal Market Implementation and Synchronization with PRR821, Update of Section 21, Process for Protocol RevisionThis Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) revises the Load Profiling Guide (LPG) in anticipation of Texas Nodal Market implementation.

LPGRR047Automatic Yearly Update of Annual Validation Usage WindowThis Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) will allow the usage window for the Annual Validation of the Load Profile Segment Assignment automatically to roll forward each year by 12 months, and changes the usage window for residential to the most recent four years. This LPGRR also deletes a related definition (‘year value’) from the definitions tab to minimize confusion and the need to update.08/03/2012No9.1.1 and Appendix DApproved
LPGRR048Synchronization with NPRR454, Removal of Unfunded Project List Language, and Modification of Administrative LPGRR DefinitionThis Load Profiling Revision Request (LPGRR) aligns the Load Profiling Guide with Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 454 (approved by the ERCOT Board on July 17, 2012) which removed language regarding the Unfunded Project List.

This LPGRR is part of a series of revision requests submitted by the Market Information System User Group (MISUG) in support of the TAC June 2013 recommendation that all manually developed ERCOT market reports be reviewed for market interest and the amount of labor involved to produce the reports. This LPGRR is the result of a collaborative effort between the MISUG and ERCOT to review the reports that are manually produced by ERCOT. Below is the MISUG summary of the results of the review: Evaluated the 134 reports manually produced by ERCOT Staff 95 reports are required by Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Substantive Rules, ERCOT Protocols or an ERCOT Other Binding Document. 39 reports are requested or self prompted. Conclusion of the evaluation: Discontinue 15 reports, eliminating 516 hrs of manual work annually. Continue producing 119 reports which constitute 24,631.5 hours of manual work annually.

LPGRR056Initial Profile Assignment for Temporary ServicesThis Load Profiling Revision Request (LPGRR) aligns the Load Profiling Guide with the current process Transmission and/or Distribution Service Providers (TDSPs) invoke when assigning initial Load Profiles for temporary services.06/25/2015NoAppendix DApproved10/01/2015
LPGRR057Alignment with NPRR781, Updates to Nodal Protocol Section 18, Load Profiling, to Align with Current Market ProcessesWith the proliferation of Advanced Metering Systems (AMS) in the ERCOT market, this Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) provides a comprehensive review of the Load Profiling Guide (LPG) and makes the following changes: • Updates language to clarify purpose and definitions; • Updates current processes and methodologies; and • Removes outdated processes and practices. Much of the removed language was originally created when the retail market deregulated and outlined the theories and approaches utilized for the initial development of Load Profile assignments for non-interval Electronic Service Identifiers (ESI IDs). As the market has matured, particularly with the deployment of AMS, such detailed explanation of creating Load Profiling Methodologies and processes are no longer utilized.06/01/2016NoThis LPGRR includes numerous changes within the Load Profiling Guide.
