July 13, 2015 | Control Performance Standard BAL-001-2 | [presentation] |
NERC’s new reliability control standard, BAL-001-2, became effective June 21, 2015. The purpose of this reliability standard is to maintain interconnection frequency within predefined frequency limits. Balancing Authorities in the Western Interconnection have been field testing BAL-001-2 since March 2010. We discussed results of the field trial and considered lessons learned and recommendations for the successful implementation of the new control performance standard.
