Status: Approved
Date Posted: Nov 20, 2006
Sponsor: PSEG Texgen I
Urgent: Yes
Sections: 5.6.5, 5.6.6,, 5.6.8
Description: This Protocol Revision Request will provide ERCOT with a tool that will enable incremental online capacity upon ERCOT issuing an Alert due to a capacity short supply situation. This Protocol change will also allow QSEs to represent their previously stranded capacity as available and capable of being loaded to their full real-time capability during an Alert due to a capacity short supply situation.
Reason: Minimize the need and cost associated with the EILP, but still provide ERCOT with a tool to address system Alerts due to a capacity short supply situation.
