PJM reminded generating unit owners at the Jan. 10 Operating Committee meeting that they have fewer than 50 days left to submit requests for adjustments to unit-specific parameter limitations for delivery year 2017/2018.
Capacity Market sellers who do not believe their individual resources can meet minimum unit-specific operating parameters under Capacity Performance – due to actual operating constraints – may request adjustments for those resources for the parameters for their cost-based and price-based parameter limited schedules to the PJM for review.
If a market seller does not submit an adjustment for CP-cleared units for delivery year 2017/18 by Feb. 28, the proxy values for each parameter will be applied based on the appropriate technology and/or classification (see chart on page 3), effective June 1.
If PJM has already approved a unit’s parameters from a previous auction year, the seller does not have to submit again, unless there is a change to the unit’s operational capability.
PJM also presented continuing education on new language on pseudo-tie agreements.
PJM does not have a standard agreement to request and implement a pseudo-tie, resulting in many form variations among pseudo-ties. The language addresses several issues, including developing uniformity in pseudo-tie requirements. The committee will vote on this issue at the February meeting.
The committee endorsed changes to:
- Manual 38: Operations Planning
- Manual 40: Training and Certification
- PJM’s regulation requirement for Manual 12: Balancing Operations
Other committee business and updates:
- First read – changes to Manual 01: Control Center and Data Exchange
- Educational presentation on PJM’s daily load forecasting process
- Cold Weather Preparation, including cold weather exercise status
- Development of new operating protocols for the PJM/NYISO interface, which includes NYISO and PJM’s joint filing for joint operating agreement revisions to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the end of January
