Frequency Support, Ramping Capability and Voltage Support Essential to Reliability
ATLANTA – New generation resources must provide adequate levels of frequency support, ramping capability and voltage control to maintain the reliability of the bulk power system during its ongoing transformation, a new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation finds. The Essential Reliability Services Task Force Measures Framework Report helps industry understand and prepare for the change in resource mix, which includes the increased use of variable energy resources, the retirement of conventional generating units, advances in distributed energy resources and other changes to traditional generation resources.
NERC also developed an abstract that provides reliability considerations and information for policy makers, regulators and industry in a condensed, high-level manner. The abstract contains links to three videos describing the basics of essential reliability services in easy to understand terms.
