IRO-006-TRE-1 - ERCOT IROL and SOL Mitigation in the ERCOT Region
Texas Reliability Entity Facilitator: Reliability Standards Manager
IRO-006-TRE-1 was approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on May 31, 2012. This regional standard became effective on July 1, 2012.
The regional reliability standard proposed by this Standard Authorization Request (SAR) supports bulk power system reliability by providing enforceable requirements associated with the existing Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) congestion management procedures. This regional standard addresses the FERC directive in Paragraph 964 of Order 693, where FERC found that the ERCOT transmission load relief procedures were superior to the national standard, and directed the ERO to provide Reliability Standards including Requirements, Measures and Levels of Non-Compliance corresponding to the ERCOT procedures for application in the ERCOT Region.
This regional reliability standard complies with that directive. This regional reliability standard has five requirements that describe the obligations of the applicable entities in executing the existing congestion management procedures in the ERCOT Region, which are contained in Section 7 of the ERCOT Protocols (zonal).
The SAR, documents associated with the development of the standard and the approved version of the standard are posted below.
