PCE Releases NERC Report evaluating Proposed Balancing Resources and Demand Standards

Working with the Consortium for Electric Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS), PCE completed and submitted on September 26, 2005 to the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) the final revision of its report evaluating the proposed Balancing Resources and Demand Standards. The report was also presented to the NERC Standard Drafting Team responsible for developing the Balancing Resources and Demand Standard, chaired by Raymond Vice of Southern Company.

This latest project builds on PCE's reputation in providing expertise regarding electric industry control standards. Under a contract from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) PCE worked from 1994 to 1997 to develop a set of innovative statistical theories for interconnected operation. These theories established the technical basis on which the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) adopted a new set of Control Performance Standards (CPS1 and CPS2) as designed and recommended by PCE.

The final report evaluating the proposed Balancing Resources and Demand Standard has been released to the NERC and CERTS staff. A copy of the report is also available on the Papers section of PCE's company website.
