Past Action Items • Action item – Concern that mid-hour curtailments of all tags to zero during a facility outage is not necessarily the best procedure for the Interconnection. Synopsis of problem needs to be written and forwarded to CMOPS. • Status – CMOPS met on August 10, 2005 and had a significant discussion of this issue paper. It was a CMOPS decision that whenever a transmission path is lost the schedules and associated E-tags must be curtailed. It is a violation of MORC policy to schedule across an open transmission path. Even, within hour system events need be mitigated by curtailing schedules. No Further Action Required by ISAS.
