Current Protocols require that forecasted and actual wind power production be posted hourly. This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) is twofold:
Adds a new public report to be posted every five minutes that provides, on both a system-wide and regional basis, the five-minute actual wind power production for a rolling historical 60-minute period. (Note that this includes the current Real-Time value along with a rolling 60-minute history of five-minute actual values.)
Changes the existing hourly report for Actual and Forecast Regional Wind Report to provide the following information on both a system-wide and regional basis:
Aggregate Wind-powered Generation Resource (WGR) Power Output
Aggregate Short-term Wind Power Forecast (STWPF)
Aggregate Wind-powered Generation Resource Production Potential (WGRPP)
Aggregate Current Operating Plan (COP) High Sustained Limits (HSLs) for On-Line WGRs
These reports will compliment the new Public Aggregated Wind Dashboard proposed in System Change Request (SCR) 765, Public Aggregated Wind Dashboard.
To provide the market with near Real-Time wind power production data.
