NERC Submits Informational Filing Regarding Reliability Standard BAL-001-2

On October 1, 2018, in Docket No. RM14-10-000, NERC submitted an informational filing regarding Reliability Standard BAL-001-2 (Real Power Balancing Control Performance). Reliability Standard BAL-001-2 is intended to ensure that Interconnection frequency is maintained within predefined frequency limits and improved upon the prior version of the standard by adding a frequency component to the measurement of a Balancing Authority (BA) Area Control Error (ACE) called the BA ACE Limit (BAAL). In Order No. 810, FERC approved the Reliability Standard, but directed NERC to submit an informational filing after implementation of the standard regarding potential impacts on System Operating Limit (SOL) and Interconnection Reliability Operating Limit (IROL) exceedances in the Western and Eastern Interconnections. This submittal is NERC’s informational filing.
