PRR242Waiver for Existing ContractsTNMP requests that Protocol Section 10.3.2.3 be amended for existing netting agreements which terminate between June 1, 2001 & December 31, 2001 by allowing an exception for generation netting which TNMP states does not otherwise affect ERCOT or competition.04/27/2001Yes10.3.2.3Withdrawn
PRR250NOIE Consumption by ESI-IDAllows the QSE for a NOIE to see the consumption data for an ESI-ID for that NOIE.06/20/2001No15.2 & 15.3Withdrawn
PRR276Adjust BENA ComputationAdjust the computation of the Balancing Energy Neutrality Adjustment to more accurately assign the payments and charges to Load Serving Entities.08/20/2001Yes9.6.1Withdrawn
PRR277Clarify SCF Fee DeterminationSec. 7.3.3.1(2) of the ERCOT Protocols states that Any shortages, not covered by ERCOTs line of credit, will be uplifted to all QSEs representing Load on a Load Ratio Share. This PRR clarifies that such uplift should occur by adjusting the Forecasted Fee in the System Congestion Fund calculation, rather than uplifting congestion costs in excess of congestion fund revenues through the Balancing Energy Neutrality Adjustment, as is current practice by ERCOT.08/20/2001Yes7.3.3.1Withdrawn
PRR281Allowance for Aggregated Site-Specific Resource Dispatch Instructions (v2)This is version 2 of the original PRR submitted on 9/10/2001. This revision is intended to allow for site-specific dispatch of resources & would not be mandatory for all resource owners. V2 redefines sections of the Protocols where change is necessary & requests a Normal timeline for implementation. This PRR was originally entitled, Change ERCOT Deployment Instructions to Settlement Meter Specific. Due to the emergence of split metering, netting behind meters, & other factors the reference to instructions to the settlement meter was dropped in favor of the more accurate description of aggregated site-specific dispatch of resources.05/24/2002NovariousWithdrawn
PRR282Define OOME as an Instructed Deviation09/11/2001YesWithdrawn
PRR284Adjusted Computation of BENAAdjust the computation of the Balancing Energy Neutrality Adjustment to more accurately assign the payments and charges to Load Serving Entities. This PRR, combined with PRR277 (to be modified consistent with PRR280 such that all zonal congestion is collected via the SCF) will be effective during the CSC uplift period.09/12/2001Yes9.6.1Withdrawn
PRR286Smoothing AlgorithmThis revision will change the calculation of the Schedule Control Error equation.09/12/2001No6.10.4.2Withdrawn
PRR290Balancing Energy Down BidsAn across-the-board mandatory balancing down requirement can prevent QFs such as Gregory from providing contracted service to their thermal host. This reduces the reliability of QF service, threatens the thermal hosts service, potentially violates PURA §39.151 (l) by interrupting an internal process operation associated with an industrial generation facility, and is opposed to federal policies favoring QF development.10/04/2001No4.4.5Withdrawn
PRR293Uncontrollable Renewable ResourcesRequest Boxing of Existing Language since functionality does not exist to provide for this functionality and there is no viable manual work-around.10/10/2001Yes6.8.1.15.1Withdrawn

PRR320Loads Participation in AS MarketThe testing and monitoring requirements for responsive reserves and non-spinning reserves prohibit a QSE from delivering such services at levels above defined limits. For testing, the QSE cannot deliver more than 105% of the requested reserves. For monitoring, the QSE cannot deliver more than 120% of the requested reserves. The proposed revisions eliminate these upper limits on testing and deployment for loads acting as a resource.03/01/2002Yes6.10.3.2(4); 6.10.3.3(4); 6.10.5.4 & 6.10.5.5Withdrawn
PRR331OOMC Floor PriceRevise OOMC Payment calculations so that such deployments are not pay as bid & establish the OOMC floor payment as discussed in the PRS recommendation of PRR285.05/06/2002Yes6.8.2Withdrawn
PRR339REC for OOM DownThis PRR is one of a group of PRRs [#s 334-340] that the submitter requested be considered as a single vote. To be fair to renewable resources without increasing the costs of Local Congestion, this PRR credits renewable resources that provide OOME Down service by awarding the resource RECs for energy not generated by the renewable resource due to providing the OOME Down service. This solution will also require an amendment to PUCT Substantive Rule 25.173.05/20/2002Yes14.7Withdrawn
PRR340Remove Market Solution DefinitionThis PRR was originally part of a group of PRRs [#s 334-340] that the submitter requested be considered as a single vote. Remove the Market Solution concept as part of the mechanism for resolving Local Congestion. Renamed: Define OOME as an Instructed Deviation. The revised PRR allows for the deployment of dispatch instructions for OOME and does not remove the Market Solution definition.05/20/2002Yes2.1, 4.1.2, 4.5.3, 6.1.10, 6.1.11, 6.3.1, 6.4.2, 6.6.3.2.1, 6.7.1.2, 6.7.1.3, 6.7.8, 6.8.1.11, 7.1, 7.2.1.1, 7.3.2, 7.4.2, 7.4.3.1, 7.4.3.2, 7.4.3.3, 7.4.4, & 7.6Withdrawn

PRR384Protocol Preamble and Process for Advisory OpinionThe first revision creates a preamble to the Protocols that outlines the expectations of market participants as they apply Protocols in the course of their wholesale activities. The second creates an opportunity for market participants to seek guidance regarding potential ambiguities or uncertainties in the application of the Protocols to wholesale activities by obtaining an opinion from an ERCOT Director. The opinion would be binding and could be relied upon unless or until the PUC or an ERCOT TAC or Board action dictated otherwise.02/06/2003YesPreamble [new],1.5 [new], 1.6, 1.7, 1.8Withdrawn
PRR399IDR Replacement with Non-IDR Meter RequirementsThis revision allows 1) IDR installations where they are needed or required and provide the most effective utilization of this type of reporting to ERCOT; and 2) Removal of IDR installations that are no longer valid for a premise or ESI ID because of reduced load or consumption based upon 12-month consecutive usage data.04/15/2003Yes18.6.1 & 18.6.6Withdrawn
PRR406Two Year CSC & Zone SelectionRevises the current one year forward establishment of CSCs and zones to a two year forward approach.04/18/2003Yes7.2Withdrawn
PRR412Distributed Generation With No Energy ExportThe revision would clarify that, for distributed generation resources that do not export energy to the ERCOT System, and are located on the Customers side of the Service Delivery Point of the retail customer of a NOIE or on the Customers side of the Service Delivery Point of a Premise with an IDR meter, separate resource metering, scheduling, data submission and settlement is Not required04/01/2003No10.2.2Withdrawn

PRR455Liability for QSE default on obligations to ERCOT and Responsibility for ERCOT Administration FeeSpreads risk of default of a QSE and ERCOT costs among both Loads and Resources.08/25/2003No9.4.4; 9.7.1Withdrawn
PRR476Ramp Rate Adherence During Local CongestionCurrently, the ramp rates on individual resources are ignored during Local Congestion. This leads to Dispatch Instructions that are impossible to adhere to, especially when every unit running for a QSE is getting a unit specific instruction. Although a QSE may ignore category 4 instructions, they must still follow the category 1. In the event that every unit running for a QSE in a zone is getting a category 4, they all make up the category 1. As a result of the ramp rates being violated, SCE cannot be followed, which puts a strain on frequency which leads to regulation and balancing instructions. Further, the QSE can potentially be penalized with imbalance charges for not keeping SCE at 0.11/13/2003Yes6.7.1.2, 6.10.7Withdrawn
PRR480Reporting of Switch and Move-In DataThis PRR would require ERCOT to post on a monthly basis the number of residential and commercial customers served by the AREP and by all CRs combined, as well as the levels of switches and move-ins completed during the month by the AREP and CRs for residential and commercial customers.12/04/2003No15.6 [new]Withdrawn
PRR494Revise Forecasted Load Profile Post timeERCOT will publish forecasted Load Profiles for the next three business days no later that 5:30 a.m. in addition to there current posting at 10:00 a.m. This PRR also Clarifies that ERCOT will provide historical Load Profile data for up to the previous two years.02/24/2004No18.3.3Withdrawn
PRR500OOME Down Payments - Verifiable CostsThe OOME Up payment mechanism provides for verifiable costs in excess of normal OOME Up payment. Having this same mechanism in the OOME Down payment structure provides fairness to Market Participants.03/17/2004No6.8.2.3Withdrawn
PRR503Section 8 Coordination of Resource Outage Due to TSPResource Entities that have arranged for redundant interconnection onto the ERCOT Transmission Grid, during the construction and interconnection phase, shall not be exposed to interruption of both interconnections at the same time, without the TSP arranging for station service and ERCOT taking on the responsibility of serving the Resource Entitys obligations.03/19/2004No8.2.4Withdrawn
PRR505Elimination of OOME Down PaymentsThis revision would eliminate the compensation currently provided for all Resources called upon for OOME Down and/or Local Balancing Energy Down (generic costs or generic bid limits would still be used as a deployment selection criteria, but not for settlement). Because the language changes desired for this PRR are in the same subsections of Section 6 & 7 as changes currently proposed in PRR485, a request currently in-flight, specific Protocol Section edits are not provided at this time (see Protocols Section 21.4.1(5), providing that suggested language for requested revisions is optional). Once PRR485 is considered by TAC and the BOD, the applicable baseline language will be redlined and submitted as comments to this PRR.03/24/2004No6 & 7Withdrawn
PRR506Revision to Short Payment ProcessRevises the timeline for uplift of partial payments.03/29/2004No9.4.4Withdrawn
PRR511Clarification of PCR EligibilityThe change is a forward-looking clarification of the eligibility for PCRs. The existing language is ambiguous regarding contractual changes between NOIEs and full requirement suppliers. The new wording has been vetted through the TNT Congestion Management Concept group and approved for inclusion in the CRR Whitepaper by the full TNT.In no case will the proposed change create new PCR eligible transactions.04/05/2004No7.5.6Withdrawn
PRR516Curtailment Prioritization for Wind Generators Introduces the concept of using in-service date to determine curtailment priority in situations where only wind generators are needed to resolve local congestionRequires new WPGRs locating in the McCamey area to install Special Protection Schemes to limit their output.04/30/2004No7.4.2, 7.8.8Withdrawn

This PRR will extend the same requirements to the submission of verifiable costs.06/07/2004No6.8.1.11, 6.8.2.2, 6.8.2.3, 6.8.3.1, 6.8.3.3Withdrawn
PRR533Definition of Transmission Facility OwnerResponsibility associated with providing model data is not clearly defined in the Protocols. The use of TDSP has not provided clear direction for owners, operators, and ERCOT regarding model data submission. Suggested removal of responsibilities associated with Outage Scheduling provides a streamline appropriate flow of information.07/29/2004No2, 8.3.8, 8.8.2.1, 8.8.2.4, 12.4.4.1, 12.4.4.1.1, 12.4.4.1.2, 12.4.4.2.2, 12.4.4.2.3.1Withdrawn

PRR549Regulation Control During Abnormal Frequency EventsThis PRR revises Sections 6.5.3, 6.8.1.15.1, and 6.10.6 to establish an ERCOT frequency deadband of +/- 0.03Hz to aid in regulation control during abnormal frequency events. When ERCOT frequency is outside the deadband, any Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) that has a System Control Error (SCE) that is acting to return frequency to a level that is within the deadband will continue to send Dispatch signals to their Resources until the ERCOT frequency returns to a level that is within the deadband. However, in the case when ERCOT frequency is outside the deadband and, any QSE has an SCE error that is acting to move frequency further outside the deadband, that QSE will temporarily suspend sending signals to its Resources until ERCOT frequency returns to a level that is within the deadband.10/08/2004No6.5.3, 6.8.1.15, 6.10.6         Withdrawn

PRR696MAPE PublicationThis PRR would amend current Protocols to include the measure of forecast error (i.e., ERCOT™s Mean Absolute Percent Error, or MAPE). Current protocols require ERCOT to provide a load forecast and the actual load. This PRR would isolate the forecast for the Day Ahead market at 1600 hours and at midnight. Additionally, the PRR would require ERCOT to post and maintain an up-to-date historical series for the monthly average MAPE data. Lastly, this PRR would require ERCOT to segregate the weather forecast error from the overall load forecast error10/17/2006No4.2, Scheduling-Related Duties of ERCOTWithdrawn
