NERC Submits Informational Filing Related to BAL-003-1.1

On June 29, 2018, in Docket No. RM13-11-000, NERC submitted an informational filing addressing: (1) an evaluation of the use of the linear regression methodology to calculate frequency response; and (2) the availability of resources for applicable entities to meet the Frequency Response Obligation. The filing was in response to FERC Order No. 794. In Order No. 794, the Commission approved Reliability Standard BAL-003-1 (Frequency Response and Frequency Bias Setting) and directed NERC to submit this informational filing. The filing demonstrates that: (1) the median method of calculating the Frequency Response Measure (FRM) continues to provide more accurate results than the linear regression method; and (2) that sufficient frequency response resources existed in 2017 for applicable entities to meet their Frequency Response Obligation (FRO).
