Rejected Protocol Revision Requests (PRRs)
# Title Description Date Posted Urgent Protocol Sections Current Status
PRR315Cost Recovery for OOM Down(1) Allow for the recovery of Production Tax Credits. This is particularly important for Wind resources since the provision of energy at no cost, as is provided by the current pricing structure, does not provide the ability to recover the lost production tax credits that would have been earned had the Wind resource generated the electricity. (2) Clarify RODP for Wind Resources,. the change will clarify that the RODP found in paragraph 6.8.2.2 (4) for Wind Resources will be zero (same as Nuclear & Hydro).02/04/2002Yes6.8.2.2Rejected

Specifically, this PRR modifies the process of uplifting local congestion charges so that generators pay for local congestion costs.05/20/2002Yes2.1 & 6.9.7Rejected
PRR356SCE Performance RequirementTo cause QSEs to make better efforts to follow their Resource schedule so that ERCOT can accurately procure Balancing Energy, and to change the allocation of Ancillary Service capacity costs from pure load ratio share to a method that assigns costs to causation. Both reasons are currently of increased importance to assure the operationally smooth implementation of Relaxed Balanced Schedules.08/22/2002No6.10.5.1, 6.10.5.2, 6.10.5.3, 6.10.5.4, 6.10.5.5, 6.10.5.6Rejected
PRR358Negative Impact SCEReplaces the Uninstructed Deviation settlement scheme with a new methodology, called Negative Impact Schedule Control Error Charges (NISCE) that penalizes QSEs that fail to adhere to their schedules, which cause additional Schedule Control Error (SCE) and rewards QSEs that are dispatched to compensate for the SCE caused by non-performing QSEs.09/03/2002No2.1, 2.2, 6.8.1.15, 6.8.1.15.1-8Rejected

PRR481Liability for QSE default on Obligations to ERCOTThis revision would allocate responsibility for default of a QSE among Resources and Loads. Currently, only Loads bear the risk for default of an a QSE. This provision would allocate liability across both the generation and load sectors of the market in recognition of the fact that both load and generation engage in market behaviors and make decisions and policies that affect the viability of LSEs in the market. This broader sharing of risk of default of a QSE is a feature of the PJM market and will likely be a feature of the MISO market. Both of these markets have recognized the need to ensure that Market Participants have an incentive to behave in a manner and to promote decisions and policies that are in the best interests of the market as a whole.12/22/2003Yes9.4.4Rejected
PRR482Responsibility for ERCOT Administration FeeThis revision would allocate the ERCOT administrative charge equally between Resources and Loads consistent with the requirements of PURA §39.151(e). This allocation is appropriate because both Load and Generation impact ERCOT costs.12/22/2003Yes9.7.1Rejected
PRR486Fuel Oil Inventory ServiceThis PRR adds Fuel Oil Inventory Service as an Ancillary Service that can be provided by Generating Resources.01/14/2004No1.3.1.2, 2.1, 4.5.11, 4.5.11.1, 4.5.11.2, 4.5.11.5 [new], 5.6.1, 5.6.7, 6.1.13 [new], 6.2.1, 6.3.1, 6.4.2, 6.5.12 [new], 6.6.2, 6.8.6 [new], 6.9.4, 6.9.4.4 [new], 6.10.3.7 [new], 12.4.2, 12.4.4Rejected

PRR508Date of Congestion Zone ChangesCurrently, the Protocols require that changes to CSCs and Congestion Zones are effective on January 1st. This PRR proposes to modify the date that changes to CSCs and Congestions Zones will become effective on April 1st, if required. It also proposes a modification to the monthly TCR auction for the months of January through March 2005, the annual auctions for 2005 and 2006.04/01/2004No7.2.1.1, 7.2.1.3, 7.5.1, 7.5.2, 7.5.2.1, 7.5.3.1Rejected

PRR548Settlement for Mismatched Inter-QSE Energy SchedulesThis PRR proposes to reduce the quantities of energy scheduled by ERCOT into or from the Balancing Energy market during intervals in which Inter-QSE trades do not match. This will reduce ERCOT and Market Participants credit exposure to entities which submit mismatched inter-QSE trades.10/04/2004No4.7.2, 6.9.8Rejected
PRR556Elimination of ERCOT-wide Uplift of Costs Related to OOMC, OOME, LBES and RMR PaymentsChanges the allocation of OOMC, OOME, LBES and RMR costs from ERCOT-wide LRS to Congestion Zone LRS.11/12/2004No6.9.4.2, 6.9.7.1, 6.9.7.2Rejected

PRR584Extending Black Start Service Bid TimelineChange Black Start Service Bids to a two year process03/25/2005No6.5.8Rejected
PRR586SCE Performance and Regulation Cost Re-allocationReplaces monitoring of QSEs adherence to their base power schedules, Balancing Energy Dispatch Instructions, and Ancillary Service Dispatch Instructions with a single metric that motivates QSEs to stay on schedule and perform their obligations.04/01/2005No6.10.5, 9.6.1Rejected
PRR607One-Minute Ramp SchedulesAllows QSEs representing Resources to submit one-minute schedules for the ramping period associated with unit start up and shut down. Requires ERCOT to accept these one-minute ramp schedules for operations, compliance, and settlement purposes.05/27/2005No4.4.15, 4.10.4, 4.10.7Rejected
PRR609Smooth 15-minute Resource SchedulesIntroduce explicit language that encourages QSEs to make use of Relaxed Balanced Schedules so that Resource Schedules are within the capability of the generating unit and make reasonable transitions between the 15-minute intervals.06/01/2005No4.3.5Rejected
PRR610Reduction of OOME Down PaymentsThis revision would introduce further Resource Plan analysis by ERCOT between 1600 and 1800 prior to the Adjustment Period. It will require ERCOT to evaluate whether the scheduled capacity from the QSEs Generation Resources may cause transmission security violations during the Operating Day. If the potential for a transmission security violation exists, ERCOT would notify the QSE of the potential issue and the amount of MW in question with the understanding that the QSE, if it receives an OOME DN instruction, would not be paid to back down. This is intended to reduce the Uplift cost caused by a QSE that schedules more output in the Resource Plan than may be possible for the transmission system to absorb without causing a transmission security problem. The PRR does not change the Protocols that compensate generators for OOME Down instructions issued by ERCOT in Real-Time.06/10/2005No4.1.1, 4.4.16 (New), 6.8.2.3Rejected
PRR619Day Ahead Procurement of LaaR for RRSAll bids to provide Responsive Reserve Service (RRS) from Loads Acting as Resources (LaaR) submitted in the Day Ahead Market, with bid prices equal to or less than the applicable Market Clearing Price for Capacity (MCPC), will be awarded proportionally, using existing ERCOT procedures for handling multiple bids which have the same price.07/28/2005No6.6.3.1Rejected
PRR629Proper Pricing of Non-Spinning Reserve Service EnergyAdjusts the Market Clearing Price of Energy (MCPE) for the deployment of Non-Spinning Reserve Service (NSRS) to provide correct price signals to the market by using the MCPE of the appropriate zone for the interval before deployment or the interval of deployment (whichever is higher) for pricing of Balancing Energy associated when Non-Spinning Reserve Service is used by ERCOT.08/26/2005No6.8.1.12, 6.9.5.1Rejected
PRR632Clawback Mechanism for Generating Resources at a Site with an RMR UnitEstablishes a clawback mechanism applicable to RMR Standby Cost to prevent improper subsidization of Generation Resources located at the same physical location as an RMR Unit. Such Resources are called RMR Companion Unit(s). The clawback mechanism reduces the hourly Standby Price paid for RMR Service by the profits earned by operation of any RMR Companion Units located at the same site as the RMR Unit up to the cumulative total hourly Standby Cost incurred. The profits of the RMR Companion Unit(s) are defined as the difference between the MCPE for each interval that the Companion Unit(s) operate and the Resource Category Generic Fuel Cost (RCGFC) for the Companion Unit(s) less the Resource Category Generic Start Cost of the RMR Resource if started during the period in which the RMR Companion Unit(s) operated.09/09/2005No2.1, 6.8.3.1Rejected

PRR680Procurement of Capacity for Load Forecast UncertaintyERCOT presently procures an 1800 MW Mulligan and RPRS using the same process. This revision separates out the load forecast uncertainty procurement process from the RPRS procurement. Capacity for Load Forecast Uncertainty is procured from the Ancillary Services markets.08/02/2006Yes5.6.5 AlertRejected
PRR683Reduce Timeline for Notice and Cure and Create a Working Credit Limit“ Reduces time to post collateral from two Bank Business Days to one - Creates a working credit limit which allows an entity to utilize up to 85% of posted collateral + unsecured credit limit (rather than 10008/16/2006No22 Attachments B, C and H; 16.2.8, 16.2.9Rejected
PRR692Corrections to Replacement Reserve ServiceRemoves costs related to capacity procured for system security from the costs that are solely assigned to under-scheduled Qualified Scheduling Entities (œQS€?), provides incentives for more accurate resource plans and eliminates the RPRS over-collection by compensating QSEs representing unscheduled resource09/19/2006No2.1, Definitions; 2.2, Acronyms; 4.4.16, ERCOT Receipt of Replacement Reserve Service Bids; 6.4.2, Determination of ERCOT Control Area Requirements; 6.5.6, Replacement Reserve Service; 6.8.1.11, Local Congestion Replacement Reserve Payment to QSE; 6.9.2.1.1, Replacement Reserve Under Scheduled Capacity; 6.9.2.1.2, Replacement Reserve Uplift ChargeRejected
PRR702Emergency Interruptible Load ServiceModify the Zonal Protocols to allow for the use of an Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS) when an Emergency Electric Curtailment Plan (EECP) is declared and all available Generation and Loads acting as Resources (LaaR) have been deployed.12/19/2006YesSection 2, Definitions and Acronyms; Section 4, Scheduling; Section 5, Dispatch; Section 6, Ancillary Services; Section 9, Settlements; Section 12, Market Information System; and Section 16, RegistrationRejected
PRR703Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS)This PRR changes the Protocols Sections noted above and institutes an Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS) as a load interruption emergency backstop for use only during Emergency Electric Curtailment Plan (EECP) Step 3. EILS would be a merit order of loads that have voluntarily offered to interrupt at an offer price and would be dispatched to interrupt in the EECP step just prior to the Independent System Operator™s (ISO) dispatch order to Transmission and Distribution Service Provider/Distribution Service Providers (TDSP/DSPs) to shed firm load in order to preserve the syste€™s frequenc12/28/2006YesSection 2, Definitions and Acronyms; Section 4.1.1, Day Ahead Scheduling Process; Section 4.1.3, Month Ahead Scheduling Process (New); Section 4.4.8, Submittal of Day Ahead Schedules and Ancillary Services Schedules; Section 4.11, Month Ahead Scheduling Process (New); Section 5.6.7, EECP Steps; Section 5.6.8, Emergency Compensation; Section 5.8.3.1, Data Collection; Section 6.1.13, Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS) (New); Section 6.2.1, Ancillary Services Solely by ERCOT; Section 6.5.1.1, Requirement for Operating Period Data for System Reliability and Ancillary Service Provision; Section 6.5.12, Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS) (New); Section 6.6.2, Competitive Procurement of Ancillary Service Resources by ERCOT; Section 6.7.9, Deployment and Recall of EILS (New); Section 6.10.2, General Capacity Testing Requirements; Section 6.11, (Emergency Interruptible Load Service Qualification, Testing and Performance Standards (New); Section 12.4.2, Ancillary Service – Related Information; and Section 16.2, Registration of Generation Resources and Loads Acting as a Resource.Rejected
PRR704Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS)This PRR changes the Zonal Protocols sections noted above and upon approval institutes an Emergency Interruptible Load Service (EILS) as a load interruption emergency backstop during Emergency Electric Curtialment Plan (EECP) Step 3. EILS would provide ERCOT with a pool of loads that have voluntarily offered to interrupt at an offer price and would be dispatched to interrupt in the EECP step just prior to the Independent System Operator™s (ISO) dispatch order to Transmission and Distribution Service Provider/Distribution Service Providers (TDSP/DSPs) to shed firm load in order to preserve the syste€™s frequency.01/10/2007YesSection 2, Definitions and Acronyms; Section 4.1.3, Month Ahead Scheduling Process (New); Section 4.2, Scheduling-Related Duties of ERCOT Section; 4.8, Temporary Deviations from Scheduling Procedures; Section 4.11, Month Ahead Scheduling Process (New); Section 5.6.7, EECP STEPS; Section 5.6.7.1, Restoration of Market Operations; Section 6.1.13, Emergency Interruptible Load Service (New); Section 6.2.2, Ancillary Services Provided in Part by ERCOT and in part by Qualified Scheduling Entities; Section 6.3.1, ERCOT Responsibilities; Section 6.4.2 Determination of ERCOT Control Area Requirements; Section 6.5, Technical Requirements for Providers of Ancillary Services; Section 6.5.1.1, Requirement for Operating Period Data for System Reliability and Ancillary Service Provision; Section 6.5.1.2, Requirement for Operating Period Data for Emergency Interruptible Load Service Provision (New); Section 6.5.12, Emergency Interruptible Load Service (New); Section 6.6.1, Qualified Scheduling Entity Rights and Obligations to Self-Arrange Ancillary Service Resources; Section 6.6.2, Competitive Procurement of Ancillary Service Resources by ERCOT; Section 6.6.8, ERCOT Month-Ahead Ancillary Service Procurement Process (New); Section 6.8.6, Capacity Payments for Emergency Interruptible Load Service (New); Section 6.8.6.1, Payments for Emergency Interruptible Load Service Capacity (New); Section 6.8.6.2, Emergency Interruptible Load Service Payment to QSE (New); Section 6.9.9, Settlement for ERCOT Emergency Interruptible Load Service Procured for the Operating Month (New); Section 6.9.9.1, Emergency Interruptible Load Service Charge (New); Section 6.10.2, General Capacity Testing Requirements; Section 6.11, Emergency Interruptible Load Service Qualification, Testing and Performance Standards (New); Section 9.2.2, Settlement Statement Data; Section 16, Registration and Qualification of Market Participants; Section 16.5, Registration of Generation Resources, Loads Acting as a Resource, and Emergency Interruptible Load ResourcesRejected
PRR72248 Hour RestorationThis Protocol Revision Request (PRR) proposes language so that in the unlikely event of an ERCOT System shut down, ERCOT will return 90% of ERCOT peak load to pre-disturbed condition at or near 48 hours if a viable solution is available.05/14/2007No6.5.8, Black Start ServiceRejected
PRR730Balancing Energy Price Adjustment for Deployment of Replacement Reserve ServiceThis PRR adjusts the Market Clearing Price for Energy (MCPE) when Replacement Reserve Service (RPRS) is deployed. This PRR is intended to be similar to PRR 650, Balancing Energy Price Adjustment Due to Non-Spinning Reserve Service Energy Deployment, which removes non-spin deployments from the bid stack before calculating the MCPE.06/19/2007No6.8.1.12, Payments for Balancing Energy Provided from Ancillary Services During the Operating Period and 6.9.5.1, Balancing Energy Clearing PriceRejected
PRR737Direct Assignment of RPRS CostsThis PRR modifies the cost allocation methods for RPRS to be exactly the same as PRR676, RPRS Solution with Nodal RUC-Type Procurement and Cost Allocation, with one exception: the cap on the RPRS and Out-of-Merit Capacity (OOMC) charges is a multiple of one times the megawatts that a Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) is short. In PRR676, which was approved by the ERCOT Board of Directors and subsequently overturned by the Public Utility Commission (PUCT), the cap on the OOMC and RPRS charges was two times the megawatts that a QSE is short.09/05/2007Yes6.6.3.2.1, Specific Procurement Process Requirements for Replacement Reserve Service in the Adjustment Period; 6.8.2.2, Capacity and Minimum Energy Payments; 6.9.2, Obligations for Capacity Services Obtained in the Adjustment Period; 6.9.7.1, OOM Capacity ChargeRejected
PRR739Administrative Price AdjustmentsThis proposal revises that calculation to include administrative price adjustments under certain conditions. By modifying the calculation of MCPE in Section 6.9.5.1, all other Protocol reference to MCPE should be correct without further modification. Note that acceptance of this revision request negates the need for revisions to Protocols as passed under PRR650.10/03/2007No6.3.1, ERCOT Responsibilities 6.8.1.12, Payments for Balancing Energy Provided from Ancillary Services During the Operating Period 6.9.5.1, Balancing Energy Clearing PriceRejected
PRR742Balancing Energy Price Adjustment Due to OOMC, OOME and RRS Deployments During Alert and Emergency Notice ConditionsThis PRR is an alternative to PRR 739. It adjusts the Market Clearing Price of Energy (MCPE) when the deployment of Out of Merit Capacity (OOMC), or Out of Merit Energy (OOME) or Responsive Reserve Service (RRS) occurs during an Alert or Emergency Notice condition. This adjustment is similar to that applied to Non-Spin Reserve Service as described in PRR 650, Balancing Energy Price Adjustment Due to Non-Spinning Reserve Service Energy Deployment, which was approved by the ERCOT Board on August 15, 2007. However, in this PRR, these adjustments are effective only during intervals in which an ERCOT-declared Alert or Emergency Notice condition exists. Although ex-post pricing is not a perfect solution, it does allow the market to establish prices during emergency conditions rather than an administratively-set price.10/25/2007No6.8.1.12 -- Payment for Balancing Energy Provided from Ancillary Services During the Operating PeriodRejected
PRR754Resource Settlement Due To Forced Transmission OutageClarifies Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) scheduling generation Resources will receive Out of Merit Energy (OOME) Down to zero (0) Verbal Dispatch Instructions (VDIs) when a Transmission Facility Forced Outage trips a generation unit offline.02/04/2008No6.5.11, Zonal Out-of-Merit Energy ServiceRejected
PRR767Issuance of Alerts for Certain Uses of Balancing EnergyThis Protocol Revision Request (PRR) proposes a revision that allows ERCOT to issue an Alert pursuant to Section 5.6.5, Alert, instead of declaring an Emergency Condition when using zonal Balancing Energy to resolve flow limit violations for base case or post-contingency limiting elements that are not Commercially Significant Constraints (CSCs) or CREs.07/14/2008No7.3.2Rejected
PRR825Distributed Energy Resource Participation in Responsive Reserve Service MarketsThis Protocol Revision Request (PRR) allows Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to participate in Responsive Reserve Service (RRS) markets subject to the restrictions provided in the Protocols and Operating Guides. The sponsor of this PRR anticipates that changes to the Operating Guides would also need to be made to define the set points for the under-frequency relays. The sponsor proposes setting these values at 59.7 to parallel the action of under-frequency relay breakers in Loads acting as a Resource (LaaR).07/24/2009No2.1, 2.2, 6.5.1.1, 6.5.4, 6.7.3, 6.10.1, 6.10.2, 6.10.5.4, 6.10.12Rejected
PRR828Remove QSE SCE Performance Exemption for QSEs with only Uncontrollable Renewable Resources On-lineStakeholders participating in the special task force on steady state performance metrics for Resources in response to the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Staff’s draft Protocol Revision Request (PRR) 586, SCE Performance and Regulation Cost Re-allocation, purposely and temporarily exempted Wind-powered Generation Resource (WGR)-only Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) from the metric they developed in order to focus on the task of building a meaningful metric for all other Resource technologies. This PRR would eliminate that exemption and place WGR-only QSEs on an even playing field with other technologies based on their impact to the system’s reliability and Ancillary Services procured and in recognition of the maturity of the technology to date as evidenced in select white papers promoting WGR provision of Ancillary Services.09/01/2009Yes6.10.6Rejected
PRR835Reactive Capability RequirementThis PRR clarifies the Reactive Power capability requirement for WGRs by specifying +/- 0.95 power factor criteria as the minimum requirement, and the Generation Resources Unit Reactive Limit (URL) criteria as the maximum requirement contingent upon a System Impact Study by the TSP.09/30/2009Yes2.1, 2.2, 6.5.7, 6.5.7.1, 6.5.7.4 (new), 6.7.6Rejected
PRR848Allow ERCOT Option to Cancel RPRS Capacity CommitmentsThis Protocol Revision Request (PRR) adds statements allowing ERCOT the option of canceling capacity commitments made by Replacement Reserve Service (RPRS).
