Purpose

In addition to proposing to create a new rule, Section 205.9, Dispatches for Concurrent Services, the AESO has identified necessary amendments to the following ISO rules and Consolidated Authoritative Document Glossary (CADG) Definitions:

  • Consolidated Authoritative Document Glossary (CADG) Definitions (including a change to the Future Effective CADG-Defined Terms)
  • Section 201.7, Dispatches
  • Section 203.4, Delivery Requirements for Energy
  • Section 205.2, Issuing Dispatches and Directives for Operating Reserves
  • Section 205.5, Spinning Reserve Technical Requirements and Performance Standards
  • Section 205.6, Supplemental Reserve Technical Requirements and Performance Standards
  • Section 303.1, Fast Frequency Response Service
  • Section 503.16, SCADA Technical and Operating Requirements

The AESO proposes to consult with Stakeholders on the Fast Frequency Response (FFR) ISO Rule Amendments which are the minimal rule changes necessary to articulate how discrete, technology-agnostic FFR will be used to support the AIES.
