The order establishes operating procedures and certification standards for an Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) to enforce mandatory reliability standards for the US bulk-power system.
The order requires each public utility transmission provider to: (1) offer intra-hourly transmission scheduling (in intervals of 15 minutes or less); and, (2) incorporate provisions into the pro forma Large Generator Interconnection Agreement requiring interconnection customers whose generating facilities are variable energy resources to provide meteorological and forced outage data to the public utility transmission provider for the purpose of managing the flow of renewable energy with improved power production forecasting.
The order granted in part and denied in part requests for rehearing and clarification of Order No. 661. The order adopted the joint recommendation of the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) and American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) on low voltage ride-through provisions; and, clarified that the point of measurement for the low voltage ride-through standard is at the point of interconnection.
The order requires public utilities that own, control, or operate electric transmission facilities in interstate commerce to append technical standards for the interconnection of large wind generating plants to their filing of revised open access transmission tariffs, as a supplement to the procedures and agreement adopted in Order No. 2003.
The order reaffirmed determinations and clarified certain provisions in Order No. 2003B.
The order reaffirmed determinations and clarified certain provisions in Order No. 2003A.
The order reaffirmed determinations and clarified certain provisions in Order No. 2003.
The order issued rules governing the filing of revised open access transmission tariffs that contain standard procedures and a standard agreement for the interconnection of generators larger than 20 MW.
Overview of the results of the 2010 Offshore Wind Transmission Study.
The report summarizes multiple scenarios that were developed to evaluate the operational impacts of wind generation variability on PJM Interconnection's bulk electric power system. The scenarios were devised to fulfill 20%-30% of the region's electricity generation from renewable sources by 2026.
