Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines WECC’s survey on primary frequency response – part of a voluntary initiative sponsored by NERC and the North American Generation Forum (NAGF) to identify units with governors that are not set in accordance with regional norms.  The survey includes a tool which determines the governor’s adequacy based on its response to an actual external loss-of-energy event (Disturbance) that led to a reduction in system frequency

WECC has distributed event surveys to GOPs in the Northeast section of the Western Interconnection.  Clients who have been invited to participate in the survey have until 9/11/17 to return their results toFrequencyEventData-WI@nerc.net.
