Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) allows ERCOT to provide important information about Resource Forced Outages and Forced Derates to the public in a more complete and timely manner. Specifically, these changes will require the entry of all Resource Outages and Forced Derates into Outage Scheduler, regardless of the duration of the Outage; require the entry of all Resource Forced Outages and Forced Derates into Outage Scheduler within one hour of the beginning of the Forced Outage or Forced Derate; require the entry of the reason for any Forced Outage or Forced Derate into the “nature of work” field in the Outage Scheduler. Note that, separate from this NPRR, ERCOT intends to significantly expand the cause codes included in the drop-down menu for the “nature of work” field; and remove the Protected Information status for any Resource Outage that occurs during an Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) or within 24 hours prior to the declaration of an EEA, or that extends into an EEA, to allow public reporting of the magnitude, duration, and causes of those Outages.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues. Market efficiencies or enhancements.
