Reactive Power Requirements for Non-Synchronous Generation
Document Number: 2015-29972
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-11-25
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is proposing to eliminate the exemptions for wind generators from the requirement to provide reactive power. As a result, all newly interconnecting generators, including both synchronous and non- synchronous generators, would be required to provide reactive power. To implement this requirement, the Commission proposes to revise the pro forma Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA), Appendix G to the pro forma LGIA, and the pro forma Small Generator Interconnection Agreement (SGIA) in accordance with the Commission's regulations, which require every public utility with a non-discriminatory open access transmission tariff on file to also have on file the pro forma LGIA and pro forma SGIA ``required by Commission rulemaking proceedings promulgating and amending such interconnection procedures and agreements.'' In this Proposal to Revise Standard Generator Interconnection Agreements (Proposal), the Commission proposes to modify both agreements to eliminate the exemptions for wind generators from the requirement to provide reactive power. As a result, all newly interconnecting generators (i.e., new generators seeking to interconnect to the transmission system and all existing non- synchronous generators making upgrades to their generation facilities that require new interconnection requests), both synchronous and non- synchronous, would be required to provide reactive power as a condition of interconnection as of the effective date of the final revision.
