CC 6470 Real Time Instructed Imbalance Energy Settlement to align with
ISO commitment to operationalizing “slow DR” such that they can be useful as a local RA resource. “Slow” demand response resources are those that cannot fully respond within 20 minutes post-contingency. NERC standards and the ISO tariff specify a maximum manual adjustment time of 30 minutes after a first contingency event for the ISO to prepare the system for a subsequent contingency. Based on operational experience, the ISO has determined that ISO operators need 10 minutes to identify the contingency and assess the problem, identify a solution, and then redispatch the system, which means full resource response must occur within 20 minutes post-contingency. Because slow Proxy Demand Resources (PDRs) cannot respond within 20 minutes post-contingency, the ISO must dispatch them prior to a contingency, i.e. pre-contingency, to ensure the system can be repositioned within 30 minutes after the potential contingency event.
