Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) introduces language to: identify Outages that have historically resulted in high congestion costs, as adjusted through a stakeholder review process to account for upgrades and other changes that would affect the fidelity of this list as an indicator of Outages that might cause future congestion; encourage earlier submission of these Outages; formalize the process of rescheduling these Outages when they must be moved due to Forced Outages or later-arriving generator Outages; and provide improved transparency to Market Participants when Outages with this potential congestion impact are submitted with less than 90 days’ notice. Specific items proposed within this NPRR include: identification and posting of High Impact Transmission Elements (HITEs) and High Impact Outages (HIOs); and introduction of a Rescheduled Outage type.
Reason: Addresses current operation issues; market efficiencies/enhancements
