3.  Introductions

      o   Change Control


New Change Controls to be discussed: 

  • ChangeControl2010-731:  Update the TX SET Guides to with correct information. This includes spelling, grammar and punctuation corrections as well as removing Drop to AREP references and some cleanup on the 814_28 and 814_29.
  • ChangeControl2010-732:  In order to streamline regulatory and market agreed changes to SAC04 Codes, TX SET attendees concluded that moving the existing SAC04 codes currently in the TX SET Implementation Guides 810-02 TDSP to CR Invoice should be moved outside of the Implementation Guide and noted so that ERCOT market participants are referenced to a webpage on the ERCOT TX SET webpage that will contain the applicable SAC04 codes. 


Approved Change Controls to be discussed:

  • ChangeControl2008-725: Approved on 2/22/2010 - Update the Implementation Guide for the 867_03 and 867_02 to show that the REF~JH~I will be used for kWh Generation values only and to state that if there are multiple REF~JH~I loops in the 867_03, that ERCOT will only read and use the first one in the transaction that is encountered.  Per TX SET discussion it was determined we should remove the kWh/kVA and only say Generation Values for the REF~JH~I


Change Controls requesting Nullification: 

  • ChangeControl2008-717:  V3.0 added a duplicate YNQ~~Y~~~~~~9~RES segment to the 65002.  TX SET discussed and decided we should not try to combine the two YNQ segments into one.
