NERC Submits Comments on WECC Regional Reliability Standard Regarding Time Error Correction

On January 12, 2009, NERC submitted comments in response to FERC’s November 20, 2008, NOPR regarding the proposed WECC Regional Reliability Standard BAL-004-WECC-01, Automatic Time Error Correction.  In the November 20 NOPR, FERC proposed to make mandatory for balancing authorities within the Western Interconnection-wide WECC region an automatic time error correction procedure that will help maintain interconnection frequency and, thus, reduce accumulated inadvertent interchange energy resulting from differences between scheduled and actual power flows in the Western Interconnection.  To view NERC’s comments, click here.
