Sponsor: John Dumas on behalf of the Reliability and Operations Subcommittee (ROS)
Urgent: Yes
Sections: 2.1, Definitions, 2.2, Acronyms and 4.4.15, QSE Resource Plans
Description: This Protocol Revision Request (PRR) allows Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) representing Wind-powered Generation Resources (WGR) to use an ERCOT provided Wind-powered Generation Resource Power Potential (WGRPP) forecast as the planned operating level in the Resource Plan.
Reason: Historically, ERCOT has not provided a wind-powered generation forecast for either the total ERCOT System or for the individual WGRs. Also, when performing RPRS studies, the planned operating level in the Resource Plans for WGRs is treated in the same manner as all other Resources. WGRs will continue to be treated in the same fashion; however, this PRR will allow ERCOT to perform Day Ahead RPRS procurement using a conservative forecast of the output from WGRs.
