    Background

    Status: Approved
    Date Posted: 02/10/2014
    Sponsor: ERCOT
    Urgent: No
    Sections: 11(A), 11(C)
    Description: This Settlement Metering Operating Guide (SMOGRR) proposes the following revisions: Appendix A: Provides additional option of using voice communications with the ERCOT Meter Data Acquisition System (MDAS) Group to provide confirmation of repairs after site access. Appendix C: Defines updated timeframe the MDAS Group will use for issuing notices. Defines timeframes in which data is supplied to ERCOT by a Transmission and/or Distribution System Provider (TDSP) in the event of a prolonged communications failure. Adds additional notice type of "six-hour" notice to accommodate a shortened Settlement timeline to resolve communications issues with ERCOT-Polled Settlement (EPS) Meters on the day the Real-Time Market (RTM) Settlement run occurs. Clarifies the conditions ERCOT will follow in cancelling notices.
    Reason: This SMOGRR provides implementation details in support of Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 570, Reduce RTM Settlement Timeline to Operating Day Plus Five.
