NAESB Update

August 29, 2013

Sunny Salt Lake

traditional moment for raymond
Traditional Moment for Raymond
  • Three boys are in the schoolyard bragging of how great their fathers are.
  • The first one says: "Well, my father runs the fastest. He can fire an arrow, and start to run, I tell you, he gets there before the arrow".
  • The second one says: "Ha! You think that's fast! My father is a hunter. He can shoot his gun and be there before the bullet".
  • The third one listens to the other two and shakes his head. He then says: "You two know nothing about fast. My father works for the government. He stops working at 4:30 and he is home by 3:45!!"

Voted out of JESS on March 6, 2013

Posted for 30-day formal comment on March 7, 2013

Received 4 comments

NAESB WEQ Standard Review Subcommittee



ISAS Leadership

JESS met April 23, 2013, developed responses to comments

e-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
e tag 1 8 2 functional specification4
JESS has, in its late comments to the WEQ EC, recommended the specification be remanded back to JESS for further development.

The WEQ EC remanded back to JESS and asked that two issues be worked upon:

Address standard request R13004 from BPA and CISO for consideration of expanded role of registered Market Operators in e-Tag

Address the long-standing multiple control of a single reliability limit profile per tag issue

e-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
e tag 1 8 2 functional specification5
Request R13004: BPA and the CA ISO identified in both e-Tag and 1.8.2 and in NAESB WEQ-004 a lack of guidance for use of tagging fields in both the Market Segment and Physical Segment when entities sell to or buy from a Market Operator (i.e., ISOs and RTOs).

JESS participants at the July meeting considered revising “allowed” entities in various roles within an e-Tag, but some pointed-out that approach would require significant work.

JESS participants then suggested the registration of product codes in the EIR such as “Market”.

BPA and CISO were asked to consider this option

e-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
e tag 1 8 2 functional specification6
At the August JESS meeting BPA and CISO were asked if the new product registration proposal was still good with them.

They said yes.

JESS created a “no action” recommendation on R13004 (since no standard would be changing).

The new EIR products can be requested via an EIR Enhancement Request form submitted to the NAESB office.

e-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
e tag 1 8 2 functional specification7
Single reliability limit profile per tag and multiple entities that can request an adjustment.

ISAS leadership and representatives are seeking to resolve the long-standing issue.

At the July JESS meeting reviewed five possible approaches.

At the August JESS meeting settled on “option 5”, the most complicated but most effective approach.

Created a white paper and request for informal comments.

“Informal Development” most of this year

First standards drafting team meeting this week in Colorado Springs, CO

West is fortunate to have Dede Subakti (CAISO) and James Randall (BPA) on the team

NERC seeking strip majority of the reqirements out of those standards

NERC Standards Activities
