Training: 2.14.2024
Production: 2.14.2024

About This Release

This release allows Load Management registrations to be marked Completed without requiring a Winter Peak Load/Winter Nominated ICAP.

Existing Feature Improvements:

  • Annual Load Management registrations without WPL information
    • if the Winter Peak Load is blank (null) and Summer Only is not checked, the Completed checkbox may now be checked after a popup box to confirm the user will not be entering a Winter Nominated ICAP: "The Winter Peak Load does not have a value, therefore the Winter Nominated ICAP is zero for this registration" (Confirm/Cancel buttons)
    • The “Summer Only” checkbox should only be checked if the registration is linked to a Summer Only commitment in RPM.

Bug Fixes and Steps to Recreate:

CSP and PJM Retest requests now allow the user to select a registration when clicking near the checkbox as well as directly in the checkbox. 2. The CSV download on both the Compliance Search and Energy Settlement Search no longer contains duplicate records.

About This Release

This release focuses on the Retest portion of the Test/Retest process that became effective on 6.1.2023.

New Features

PJM Retest

  • If a CSP determines that it met <=75% of the resource commitment in a zone that has been fully tested (every registration tested with a ‘Test Required’ checkmark), the CSP may request a one-time PJM Retest within 46 days of the last completed Test. The Retest may only include the registration(s) that did not meet their Nominated ICAP (Summer or Winter depending on original Test season). Details are in these training slides PDF.
    • CSP requests a PJM Retest and indicates which registrations are to be included in the PJM Retest.
    • If the CSP has selected registrations that were tested in both Summer and Winter, there will be two separate PJM Retest requests, one for each season.
    • PJM schedules the PJM Retest(s) during the same season(s) as the registration(s) selected.
    • The day before the scheduled Retest(s), the CSP will see the RE-TEST Load Management Summaries (or RE-TEST Price Responsive Demand Summary) records on the Event Search page and receive an email notification if CSP has signed up. The Start Times will not be visible.
    • The CSP will receive electronic notification (Web Services) dispatch at the notify time of the Retests as well as an email notification.

CSP Retest

  • If a CSP determines that it met > 75% of the resource commitment in a zone that has been fully tested (every registration tested with a ‘Test Required’ checkmark), the CSP may schedule CSP Retest(s). The CSP Retest(s) may only include the registration(s) that did not meet their Nominated ICAP (Summer or Winter depending on original Test season). Details are in these training slides PDF.
    • CSP schedules a CSP Retest at least 48 hours prior to the start of the CSP Retest.
    • CSP selects which registrations to include in the CSP Retest.
    • CSP may cancel a scheduled test at least 48 hours prior to the start of the CSP Retest.
    • CSP may schedule as many CSP Retests as desired.
    • If a CSP has selected registrations that must be tested in both Summer and Winter, there will be multiple RE-TEST Load Management Summaries depending on season and also for applicable Lead Times.

Web Services: a new tag has been included in the Retest downloads to indicate if the retestType is PJM or CSP. The new tag was added to the XSD in the May 2023 release.

About This Release

New Test/Retest requirement and supporting DR Hub enhancements beginning June 1, 2023. DR Testing requirements for Load Management and Price Responsive Demand are significantly changing in the upcoming Delivery Year, effective June 1, 2023. CSPs will no longer schedule their own tests. PJM will schedule and notify CSPs of their Test Dates starting June 1, 2023 The tests will be conducted on a zonal basis including all CSPs.

New Features

  • Load Management Tests and Price Responsive Demand Tests will no longer be scheduled by the CSP, but will be scheduled by PJM. Details are in these training slides https://pjm.com/-/media/training/core-curriculum/ip-dsr/pjm-load-management-and-price-responsive-demand-testing.ashx.
    • Notice of the Test Window will be posted on this web page https://www.pjm.com/markets-and-operations/demand-response/demand-response-test-schedule one week in advance by 10 am and emails will be generated to the affected CSPs.
    • The Test Window will be open for two weeks and a zonal test(s) will be scheduled within the window.
    • Notice of the Test will be posted by 10 am the day before the test at the above website and emails will be generated to the affected CSPs.
    • At the time of the Test Event day posting, the CSP can see the Test on the Events Search page, but will not see the time of the Test.
    • When the Lead Time for the Test Event begins, the CSP will get an electronic notification of the Test Event. Web Services will be required to obtain the start and ending times of all tests. The times will be included in the payload received during the normal 24/7 one minute polling. It is imperative that your company is polling and monitoring the responses from DR Hub. Note: The payloads received for Test Events are different than the payloads received for Load Management events.
    • One PJM Retest may be requested once all Test Events for the CSP in a zone are completed.
    • CSP Retest requests will be available in the upcoming June 2023 release.

September 2021

Release Dates
Training: 9.16.2021
Production: 9.16.2021

About This Release

This release is focused on automation of the Normal Operations review that is currently performed manually. All economic energy settlements that are associated with a generator or battery, will now be evaluated hour-by-hour to determine if the Retail Rate is greater than the Cost to run the unit. If so, that settlement hour will be unchecked (will not be settled). If all hours on a settlement are unchecked, a Resource Outage for that date will be created automatically.

New Features

These features apply to both the User Interface and Web Services. If you use Web Services to create, modify, or view registrations, you will need to use the new XSD.

  • Registration: if a registration is associated with a generator or battery, the CSP will be able to update 5 new fields that will be the default values used when creating an economic energy settlement. The fields include: Retail Rate Type (Fixed Rate, RTLMP, DALMP, Other), Delivery ($/kWh), Supply ($/kWh), Fuel Cost ($/MWh) and Variable O&M ($/MWh).
  • Settlement: Economic energy settlements that are associated with a registration that has a generator or battery, will now display the following fields on the right side of the hourly matrix: Delivery, Supply, Fuel Cot and VOM. The CSP may modify the values of these fields, except if the Supply is derived from RT or DA LMP. When the settlement is submitted for EDC Review, comparison of Retail Rate to Cost will be performed. If Retail Rate is greater greater than the Cost to run the unit, the hour will be unchecked. If all hours on a settlement are unchecked, a Resource Outage for that date will be created automatically.

About This Release

The maintenance to the MOPR Registry Data in the DR Hub database has been automated. The maintenance has no impact on any MOPR functionality. The EDC Registration Review task has been modified to allow the EDC to review and approve/deny the LSE field on economic registrations.

Existing Feature Improvements

  • The process to copy MOPR data to the MOPR Registry after the start of the Delivery Year is now automated.
  • For Economic registrations, the EDC Registration Review and EDC Registration Extension tasks now allows the EDC to review and approve or deny the LSE field. This does not eliminate the LSE Registration Review task, but does allow the CSP to easily submit the registration for review to the correct LSE.

Bug Fixes & Next Steps to Recreate

  • On the MOPR Data screen, there is no longer an error message when the fields are sorted or filtered.
  • Registration History no longer creates duplicate records.
