An Improved Framework for Measuring Plant PerformanceScott Stallard

the situation
The Situation

The reality is that mixed regulatory, ownership and market perspectives corresponds to mixed goals, objectives, and priorities for generation entities.

Deregulation, re-regulation, privatization, markets ….

Evolving unprecedented environmental standards …

Varying business models, varying risk profiles, and different “obligations to serve” all further complicate the issue.

What are the key metrics?

Technical?

Commercial?

Environmental?

Or even Sustainability?

the role of data collection and analysis
The Role of Data Collection and Analysis

All Metrics play a key role in measuring and improving plant performance!

Technical, Commercial, Environmental, Sustainability …

In the 2004-2007, significant changes to the committee’s charter or terms of reference were made to address these needs

Data analysis technique and processes have been developed to better understand how to compare performance of generators across different markets, environmental drivers, etc.

One cannot evaluate performance via benchmarking or other techniques without good data.

Looking Toward the Future

As the global power market continue to “evolve” worldwide, it is clear that performance is becoming increasingly important.

Power markets and regulated frameworks co-exist

A lack of standards or practices for measuring performance.

Large variations in structure and focus exist

The definition or scope of performance also varies widely

looking toward the future1
Looking Toward the Future

New drivers geared toward profitability, cost control, environmental stewardship and market economics

Further, in the future, shifts in generation mix will impact picture of reliability and performance as different technologies are introduced for either environmental control or for power generation.

Issue of performance becomes increasingly complex, the ability to “measure” and analyze performance is even more challenging!

RECAP: Improved Framework for Measuring Plant Performance

New drivers geared toward profitability, cost control, environmental stewardship and market economics  Expand Metrics to Consider Commercial + Environmental Issues

Further, in the future, shifts in generation mix will impact picture of reliability and performance as different technologies are introduced for either environmental control or for power generation  Consider Roles of Plant in Generation Mix

Issue of performance becomes increasingly complex, the ability to “measure” and analyze performance is even more challenging!  Leverage Models to Evaluate Performance

recap improved framework for measuring plant performance1
RECAP: Improved Framework for Measuring Plant Performance

Start with “traditional” data analysis and metrics (UCF, UCLF, efficiency)

Add commercial metrics

Consider environmental factors within economic context

wec wg 1 charter
WEC WG 1 Charter

To educate and inform

Document technical, commercial, and other future metrics

Provides framework to see differences between regulated and de-regulated markets and/or load demand

Maintain relevance to improving global generation performance

Maintain and enhance model capabilities to “translate” technical to commercial indicators for specific situations

Mixed regulatory, ownership and market perspectives corresponds to mixed goals, objectives, and priorities for generation entities.

Allows one to “model” technical benchmarks within context of their commercial framework to evaluate possible target commercial availability metrics

Work with other organizations for establishing performance measures and standards

Lay groundwork for advances in data collection, workshops, and benchmarking processes in next triennial period
