Project 2010-14.2.1 Phase 2 of Balancing Authority Reliability-based Controls – BAL-005, BAL-006, FAC-001

Related Files |  2007-05 - Balancing Authority Controls2007-18 - Reliability-based Control 2010-14.2 - Periodic Review of BAL Standards

Status
Final ballots for BAL-005-1 – Balancing Authority Control, FAC-001-3 – Facility Interconnection Requirements, and the recommended retirement of BAL-006-2 – Inadvertent Interchange concluded 8 p.m. Eastern, Monday, February 8, 2016. The voting results can be accessed via the links below. The standards will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for adoption and then filed with the appropriate regulatory authorities.

Background
The NERC Standards Committee appointed eleven industry subject matter experts to serve on the BARC 2 periodic review team (BARC 2 PRT) in the fall of 2013. The BARC 2 PRT used background information on the standards and the questions set forth in the Periodic Review Template developed by NERC and approved by the Standards Committee, along with associated worksheets and reference documents, to determine whether BAL-005-0_2b and BAL-006-2 should be: (1) affirmed as is (i.e., no changes needed); (2) revised (which may include revising or retiring one or more requirements); or (3) withdrawn.

As a result of that examination, the BARC 2 PRT recommended to REVISE BAL-005-0_2b and BAL-006-2.

The NERC Standards Committee appointed ten industry subject matter experts to serve on the BARC 2 standard drafting team (BARC 2 SDT) in the fall of 2014.

Standard(s) Affected: BAL-005-0.2b - Automatic Generation Control, BAL-006-2 - Inadvertent Interchange, FAC-001-1 - Facility Connection Requirements

Purpose/Industry Need
The objective of BAL-005 is to establish requirements for acquiring necessary data for the Balancing Authority to calculate Reporting ACE so that balancing of resources and demand can be achieved under Tie-Line Bias Control. The current objective of BAL-006 is to define a process for monitoring Balancing Authorities to ensure that, over the long term, Balancing Authority Areas do not excessively depend on other Balancing Authority Areas in the Interconnection for meeting their demand or Interchange obligations. As the revisions proposed for BAL-006 focus on the minimum requirements for Adjacent Balancing Authorities to agree upon the hourly MW amounts of scheduled and actual Interchange between them, which reinforces that errors in coordination or process will be identified.
