Network Data Support Working Group
In the nodal Market, Transmission Service Providers (TSPs) need access to an environment of the ERCOT EMS where the following are available for their review and analysis
a)Network operations model, b) Results of the real -time State Estimator (within 5 minutes of the real time solution) including Contingency Analysis. MOTE serves as a tool to validate the integrity of the ERCOT Network Operations model, and to perform studies that facilitate better coordination of network operations between the TSPs and ERCOT. TSP need to continue to have a tool like MOTE in the Nodal Market. The new MOTE should have all the functionality that the current MOTE offers.
The existing nodal protocols do not require a MOTE functionality. MOTE will serve as a valuable tool to validate the ERCOT model (connectivity, ratings, impedances, electrical bus names) and provide TSPs a platform to compare the data that is in the ERCOT model with the data the TSP submitted.
