Phase

B

Next Update

Status

Active

Priority

High

Topics

Reliable Operations
Resource Adequacy

Advisory Committee Priority

Preserve & enhance reliability
Assure resource adequacy

Guiding Principles

Maximize alignment of market requirements with reliability requirements of the system

Focus Area

Support efficient development of resources consistent with long-term reliability and/or public policy objectives

Driver

Assessment: Efficiency and Reliability

Comments:

Support

Assessment:

Comments: Refer to February 2015 Advisory Committee (AC) Hot Topic papers and 2014 Supply Adequacy Working Group (SAWG - Retired) materials. Relates to IMM Recommendation 2014-5, 2018-5, and 2018-6 Part B

Which market products or systems does this impact?

Assessment: Energy

Comments:

How Many Megawatts Are Directly Affected?

Assessment: Approximately 12,000

Comments: The standard deviation for load & generation is ~12 GW. RAN aims to understand and, if needed, mitigate misalignment of resource availability & need.

Implementation costs and other costs

Assessment: More than $2M

Comments: Approximately $2,000,000

Production Cost Savings

Assessment: Between $5M and $10M

Comments: High: 1) Mitigate risk threatening achievement of reliability criterion due to gaps between data reported to our LOLE studies and the operating day. 2) Committing resources that are more available to MISO during the Operating Day. 3) Enhance efficiency of existing resources4. MISO administers a resilient construct that will achieve reliability objectives in a diverse set of futures (e.g., high intermittent resource penetration, retention of aging existing assets).

Other Benefits

Assessment:

Comments: Medium: Improved price signals and accounting of resource adequacy during all seasons.

Complexity/Risks

Assessment: High

Comments: MISO and stakeholders are now considering changes to market products to provide price signals that incentivize the successful conversion of capacity into energy. Current Phase Comments: RAN was transferred to the Reliability Subcommitte (RSC) by the Steering Committee in early 2018 where the Evaluation phase was completed. MISO is implementing phase 1 enhancements related to LMRs and Outage Coordination to improve the conversion of capacity into energy by Q2 2019 allowing for time for phase 2 and 3 items to be vetted with stakeholders in 2019. At the end of 2018 the Steering Committee assigned specific Resource Adequacy items to the RASC and other market-oriented items to the MSC for further development. Shorter-term operational items impacting reliability directly remain at the RSC for discussion.

Relationship to Other Initiatives

Assessment: High

Comments: Needs to account for and inform market changes in addition to regulatory, operational and planning initiatives. Stakeholders have requested coordination with the Renewable Integration Impact Assessment (RIIA) in particular which is now in place.

Potential Fast-Track Project

Assessment: No

Comments: Communicated at September 1, 2015 MSC.

Reliability Due Diligence

Assessment: Enhances Reliability

Comments: Provides Transparency into operational adequacy during all seasons.
