Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s 2022 Frequency Response filing to FERC, which marks the second year that the BAL-003-2 method is used to derive the four North American Interconnection Frequency Response Obligations (IFROs).  The new method corrects deeply entrenched flaws in the calculation of IFRO discovered during the implementation of BAL-003-1.1, which started in 2016.  NERC has expressed confidence in the validity of the new method and expects to use it going forward. 

By March 1, the ERO Enterprise will post FRS Form 1 with all selected events for the operating year for BA usage. By April 1, BAs must submit their completed frequency response forms for all four quarters, including their Frequency Bias Settings, to the ERO.
