Nodal Operating Guide

The Nodal Operating Guides, which supplement the Protocols, describe the working relationship between ERCOT and the entities within the ERCOT Region that interact with ERCOT on a minute-to-minute basis to ensure the reliability and security of the ERCOT System.

Specific practices described in the Nodal Operating Guides for the ERCOT System are consistent with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Reliability Standards and the Protocols.  Nodal Operating Guide Revision Submission Request
