Description: Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 664, Fuel Index Price for Resource Definition and Real-Time Make-Whole Payments for Exceptional Fuel Cost Events, included a Real-Time Make-Whole Payment provision to address exceptional fuel cost events that are not resolved by a change to the Fuel Index Price for Resource (FIPRr). ERCOT implemented a manual process to satisfy the requirements of these sections until May 1, 2015, at which time Sections and were grey boxed pending an automated solution. This NPRR restores the manual process for Real-Time Make-Whole Payments and Charges to address exceptional fuel cost events; and includes revisions that clarify and improve the Settlement calculations for the manual process consistent with the intent of NPRR664.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues. Market efficiencies or enhancements
