Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–725T information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: Reliability Standard BAL– 001–TRE–01 applies to entities registered as Generator Owners (GOs), Generator Operators (GOPs), and Balancing Authorities (BAs) within the Texas Reliability Entity region. Regional Reliability Standard BAL– 001–TRE–01 is more comprehensive than the existing continent-wide Reliability Standards addressing frequency response, BAL–001–0.1a and BAL–003–0.1b in that the regional standard includes additional requirements and applies to generator owners and generator operators as well as balancing authorities. The expanded applicability of the regional Reliability Standard, thus, increases the reporting burden for entities that operate within the ERCOT 2 Interconnection. The information collection requirements entail the setting or configuration of the Control System software, identification and recording of events, data retention, and submitting frequency measurable events to the compliance enforcement authority (Regional Entity or NERC). Submitting frequency measurable events. As per Requirement R1, the BA 1 Texas Reliability Entity. Reliability Council of Texas. 2 Electric PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14215 has to identify and post information regarding Frequency Measurable Events (FME). Further, the BA has to calculate and report to the Compliance Enforcement Authority data related to Primary Frequency Response (PFR) performance of each generating unit/ generating facility. Data retention. The BA, GO, and GOP shall keep data or evidence to show compliance, as identified below, unless directed by its Compliance Enforcement Authority to retain specific evidence for a longer period of time as part of an investigation. Compliance audits are generally about three years apart. • The BA shall retain a list of identified Frequency Measurable Events and shall retain FME information since its last compliance audit for Requirement R1, Measure M1. • The BA shall retain all monthly PFR performance reports since its last compliance audit for Requirement R2, Measure M2. • The BA shall retain all annual Interconnection minimum Frequency Response calculations, and related methodology and criteria documents, relating to time periods since its last compliance audit for Requirement R3, Measure M3. • The BA shall retain all data and calculations relating to the Interconnection’s Frequency Response, and all evidence of actions taken to increase the Interconnection’s Frequency Response, since its last compliance audit for Requirements R4 and R5, Measures M4 and M5. • Each GOP shall retain evidence since its last compliance audit for Requirement R8, Measure M8. • Each GO shall retain evidence since its last compliance audit for Requirements R6, R7, R9 and R10, Measures M6, M7, M9 and M10. Modification to Governor Controller Setting/Configuration (to be removed from the FERC–725T information collection). This category of response burden is being removed from FERC– 725T. The ‘‘Modification to Governor Controller Setting/Configuration’’ category was a one-time requirement related to implementation of the BAL– 001–TRE–01 Reliability Standard. Each GO was required to set its governor settings according to Requirement R6. In order to modify its settings, the GO had to generate governor test reports, governor setting sheets, and/or performance monitoring reports.
