In this context, the intent is to have broader application to include non-BES elements ( e.g. , industrial equipment). 16 The Glossary definition of “Contingency” is not appropriate because application in this context is not limited to power system contingency ( i.e., N-1 event); in this context, intended to have broader meaning.

Balancing and Balancing Authority Balancing Tasks 1. Control any of the following combinations within a Balancing Authority Area: a. Demand and resource; b. Demand and Confirmed Interchange; c. Generation and Confirmed Interchange; and d. Generation, Demand, and Confirmed Interchange 2. Calculate Area Control Error (ACE) within the reliability area. 3. Operate in the Balancing Authority Area to maintain Demand and resource balance. 4. Review generation commitments, dispatch, and Demand forecasts. 5. Formulate an operational plan ( e.g., generation commitment, outages) for reliability evaluation. 6. Approve Arranged Interchange from Ramping ability perspective. 7. Implement Confirmed Arranged Interchange. 8. Operate the Balancing Authority Area to contribute to Interconnection frequency. 9. Monitor and report control performance and disturbance 17 recovery. 10. Provide balancing and energy accounting (including hourly checkout of Confirmed Arranged Interchange, Implemented Interchange and actual Interchange), and administer inadvertent energy paybacks. 11. Determine needs for Interconnected Operations Services. 12. Deploy Interconnected Operations Services (IOS). 13. Implement Emergency procedures. 14. Provide appropriate security protections for cyber assets and physical assets, and their related support systems and data. 15. Communicate to appropriate authorities and relevant functional entities of an actual or suspected attack on cyber assets and/or physical assets. G The Glossary definition of “Contingency” is not appropriate because the definition is too broad. NERC | Reliability Functional Model | June 2016 16

Balancing and Balancing Authority Balancing Authority Definition The responsible entity that integrates resource plans ahead of time, maintains load-interchange-generation balance within a Balancing Authority Area, and supports Interconnection frequency in real time. 18 Relationships with Other Functional Entities Ahead of Time 1. Receive generator Facility plans from Generator Operators within the Balancing Authority Area. 2. Receive operational data from Generator Operators within the Balancing Authority Area. 3. Receive operating and availability status of generating units from Generator Operators within the Balancing Authority Area. 4. Receive reliability evaluations from the Reliability Coordinator. 5. Compile Demand forecasts from Load-Serving Entities. 6. Develop Agreements with adjacent Balancing Authorities for ACE calculation parameters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
