Status: Approved
Date Posted: Jan 25, 2010
Sponsor: Don Tucker on behalf of the NOIE DRG Taskforce
Urgent: No
Sections: 2.1, Definitions 2.2, Acronyms 10.2.2, TSP and DSP Metered Entities, Load Reduction for Excess PhotoVoltaic Distributed Renewable Generation, Load Reduction for Excess Non-PhotoVoltaic Distributed Generation 16.5, Registration of Generation Resources, Loads Acting as a Resource and Emergency Interruptible Load Service Resources 18.2, Methodology 18.2.2, Load Profiles for Non-Interval Metered Loads 18.2.3, Load Profiles for Non-Metered Loads
Description: The Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) includes proposed language changes by the NOIE DRG Taskforce in regards to the registration requirements for Distributed Generation (DG) greater than 50 kW and less than or equal to one MW. In addition this NPRR synchronizes language approved through PRR756, Distributed Renewable Generation Modifications, with some recommended revisions consistent with the NOIE DRG Task force discussions. PRR756 was approved by ERCOT Board on 5/20/08 and was un-grey boxed upon system implementation on 11/21/09.
Reason: The reason for this revision is to incorporate changes approved in PRR756, clarified registration requirements for DG to allow all DG to be settled as negative Load and raise the threshold for DG that can be settled as negative Load. PRR756 language established the threshold for Distributed Renewable Generation (DRG) negative Load Settlement at less than fifty (50) kW. This NPRR establishes a DG registration threshold.
