This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) proposes a compensation mechanism for Generation Resources that are issued a High Dispatch Limit (HDL) manual override that results in a real power reduction (subject to certain criteria). The proposed mechanism compensates the Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) for financial loss associated with variable cost components of Day-Ahead Market (DAM) obligations or bilateral contracts arising from the HDL manual override.
