This Planning Guide Revision Request (PGRR) introduces a new requirement for Interconnecting Entities (IEs) associated with Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) to undergo a dynamic model review process prior to Resource Commissioning Date.
Additionally, this PGRR mandates that Resource Entities owning or controlling operational IBRs must undergo a review process before implementing any changes to settings or equipment (e.g., protection and control settings) that could impact electrical performance and necessitate dynamic model updates.
As part of the review process, ERCOT shall review the model quality tests submitted by an IE or Resource Entity. In the case of operational IBRs, the review process may require the interconnecting Transmission Service Provider (TSP) conducting a limited dynamic stability study to compare and evaluate the electrical performance before and after the proposed modifications.
