Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the updated posting of the Disturbance Control Performance (DCP) standard. It is one of four BAL standards in Project 2010-14.1 looking to improve Balancing Authority control processes. There is a downstream impact to Generator Owners who must supply the reserve resources used by BAs and RSGs.

The third draft of BAL-002-2 and its supporting materials have been posted for a 45 day review period with a concurrent ballot. Clients have until September 16, 2013 to return their feedback to the project team and vote on the standard.
