Operating Reserve Demand Curve eLearning


    On June 1, 2014 ERCOT implemented the Operating Reserve Demand Curve. This created a Real-Time Price Adder to reflect the value of the available reserves in Real-Time. It reflects the Value of Lost Load (VOLL) based on the probability that load would have to be shed.
