Current operating plans in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas would be automatically updated with the next seven day’s forecast for wind and photovoltaic solar generation under a rule change approved by ERCOT’s Technical Advisory Committee Thursday.

A qualified scheduling entity — a market participant that is authorized to communicate operations with ERCOT — submits a current operating plan each hour reflecting expected operating conditions for each of the resources that it represents for each hour in the next seven operating days. The COP includes resource operational data, status and ancillary service schedule.
