Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s Informational Filing analyzing the calculation of the Frequency Response Obligation (FRO) for each Interconnection. It is the first report issued in response to FERC Docket RM13-11-000, the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking declaring the Commission’s intent to approve BAL-003-1.

Earlier this month, FERC approved BAL-003-1, which will begin to take effect over a multi-year period. The annual evaluation of interconnection frequency response will continue until the Commission is convinced that the tuning process is solid.
