This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) requires Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) action that routinely releases certain On-Line Non-Spinning Reserve (Non-Spin) energy to Security-Constrained Economic Dispatch (SCED) without the need for ERCOT to issue a Non-Spin deployment instruction. The changes in Section 126.96.36.199.2.3 do not invalidate any other existing requirements contained in this section. Those Generation Resources not subject to the provisions contained in paragraph (5) of Section 188.8.131.52.2.3 must respond to any Non-Spin deployment or recall instruction issued by ERCOT Operators in accordance with the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)-approved Non-Spinning Reserve Service Deployment and Recall Procedure.
There will not be any validation rules to verify the requirements added by this NPRR. The onus is on all QSEs to make the submission/telemetry changes needed to implement these new requirements.
To address concerns raised at the October 27, 2011 PUCT Open Meeting regarding Project No. 37897.
