    Background

    Status: Approved
    Date Posted: 09/02/2016
    Sponsor: ERCOT
    Urgent: No
    Sections: 1.3.7, 1.4.7, 3.2.3, 6.5.4
    Description: This Settlement Metering Operating Guide Revision Request (SMOGRR): 1. Clarifies paragraph (e) of Section 1.3.7 with regard to connected burden, 2. Deletes Section 1.4.7, 3. Modifies Section 3.2.3 to require the submission of nameplate photographs for new or replacement instrument transformers as part of site certification package, and 4. Modifies Section 6.5.4 to specify the voltage levels for logging loss of potential events. Note: The changes in paragraph (k) of Section 6.5.4 would be grey boxed and not implemented until one year after approval to allow Transmission and/or Distribution Service Providers (TDSPs) to reprogram ERCOT Polled Settlement (EPS) meters during the annual meter tests. This delayed implementation date, and having work performed during normal activities, will minimize impact to both TDSPs and ERCOT metering operations staff for this change.
    Reason: Addresses current operational issues; Market efficiencies or enhancements
