Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) reflects the modifications addressed in the Real-Time Co-optimization Plus Batteries (RTC+B) Task Force whitepaper to the Reliability Unit Commitment (RUC) Capacity Short calculations. These modifications were discussed in RTC+B Task Force meetings on February 21, March 19, and April 10, 2024 as part of RTC+B Task Force Issue No. 17 and were endorsed by TAC on April 15, 2024. This NPRR addresses limitations in the current RUC Capacity Short calculations by considering Ancillary Service sub-types and changes to the calculation process involving Regulation Down Service (Reg-Down). This NPRR also addresses changes required to align Protocol language with the recently-approved NPRR1204, Considerations of State of Charge with Real-Time Co-Optimization Implementation, as it relates to the RUC process. This NPRR implements an approach that continues the current policy (i.e., allocating costs in a manner consistent with cost causation) to first proportionally assign RUC Make Whole costs to Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) that are determined to be short of capacity or Ancillary Service capability when the RUC decision was made and, if necessary, assign the remaining RUC Make Whole costs to QSEs based on Load Ratio Share (LRS). This NPRR continues to follow the TAC-approved RTCTF Key Principle No. 3 (12).
Reason: General system and/or process improvement(s)
