This precalculation shall be computed daily for each resource on a Dispatch Interval basis.



This precalculation configuration consists of calculations that generate results for the following functional components used by successor configurations:

DayAhead (DA) Metered Energy Adjustment Factor (MEAF),

RealTime Performance Metric,

Tolerance Band Flag for DayAhead MEAF Application,

Tolerance Band Flag for RT Performance Metric Application

Exceptional Dispatch Metered Energy Adjustment Factor,

Determination of Persistent Deviation with 2Hour Inspection Windows, and

Persistent Deviation Metric
The calculated results shall be used by successor charge codes.



The DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor (DA MEAF) is a factor that serves to determine the portions of a Scheduling Coordinator’s resource’s relevant DayAhead Schedule that are to be included in the Bid Cost Recovery calculations based on the resource’s actual performance reflected in its Metered Energy. (Fact)



Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy is defined to be the minimum of the Expected Energy and the DayAhead Scheduled Energy. (Fact)



The CAISO shall calculate the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor for each resource through the following steps:



 
For Generation Unit or resource Specific System Resource scheduled by CAISO in the DayAhead Market



Step 1:
If the resource’s Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy is greater than or equal to its DayAhead Minimum Load Energy, and is greater than zero, then the calculation shall proceed to step two. Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step six.



Step 2:
If (1) the resource’s Metered Energy less Regulation Energy is less than its DayAhead Minimum Load Energy less the Tolerance Band; or (2) the resource’s Metered Energy less Regulation Energy is less than or equal to zero, then the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to zero (0). Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step three.



Step 3:
If the absolute value of the result of the resource’s Metered Energy less its Regulation Energy less the Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy, is less than or equal to the Performance Metric Tolerance Band, then the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to one (1). Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step four.



Step 4:
If the resource’s Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy less its DayAhead Minimum Load Energy is equal to zero, then the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to one (1). Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step five.



Step 5:
The resource’s Day Ahead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor (MEAF) shall be calculated asset to the minimum of:

(A) the number one (1); or

(B) the absolute valuemaximum of (i) the number zero (0), and (ii) the ratio of the resource’s

(a) Metered Energy less the DayAhead Minimum Load Energy. and less the Regulation Energy, and
the minimum of (i) the Expected Energy and (ii) the (b) the Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy, less the DayAhead Minimum Load Energy. Then, the calculation shall proceed to step six.



Step 6:
If the resource’s Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy is less than its DayAhead Minimum Load Energy and if the resource’s Effective DayAhead Scheduled Energy is greater than zero (0), then the resource's DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to one (1). Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step seven.



In cases where both the denominator and numerator produced by this calculation equal zero (0),Step 7:
If the DayAhead Scheduled Energy is positive and the resource’s Expected Energy is less than or equal to zero, and its Metered Energy is less than or equal to zero,
then the resource's DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor willshall be set to one (1);
otherwise, the resource's DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to zero (0).



 
For Participating Load PumpedStorage Hydro Unit or Pumping Load resource scheduled by CAISO to pump in the DayAhead Market



Step 1:
If the DayAhead Pumping Energy is negative and its Expected Energy is negative, then its DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be the minimum of: (A) the number one (1); or (B) the maximum of (i) the number zero (0) and (ii) the ratio of the resource’s Metered Energy and its Expected Energy. Otherwise, the calculation shall proceed to step two.



Step 2:
If the denominator produced from this calculation equals zero (0), butDayAhead Pumping Energy is negative and the numerator is a nonresource’s Expected Energy is greater than or equal to zero, and its Metered Energy is greater than or equal to zero number, the, then its DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor willshall be be set to one (1). Otherwise, its DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor shall be set to zero (0).



 
For a NonGenerating Resource



The metered energy adjustment factor will not apply to nongenerator resources.



The CAISO will implement this in its software by simply setting the metered energy adjustment factor to “1” for all nongenerator resources.





For the purposes of scaling a resource's Realtime Bid Cost Recovery amounts the RealTime Performance Metric shall be calculated as the minimum of:

the number one (1); or

the absolute value of the ratio of the resource’s

Metered Energy, less the DayAhead Scheduled Energy, and less the Regulation Energy, and

the total Expected Energy less the DayAhead Scheduled Energy.



If the CAISO issues RealTime Dispatch to the resource that is incremental to its DayAhead Schedule and the resource deviates downward from its DayAhead Schedule, the RealTime Performance Metric will be set to zero (0).



If the CAISO issues RealTime Dispatch to the resource that is decremental to its DayAhead Schedule and the resource deviates to a level above its DayAhead Schedule, the RealTime Performance Metric will be set to zero (0).



If the resource’s total Expected Energy is equal to the DayAhead Scheduled Energy and if the Metered Energy minus Regulation Energy is equal to the DayAhead Scheduled Energy, then the Realtime Performance Metric is set to one (1).



If the resource’s total Expected Energy is equal to the DayAhead Scheduled Energy and if the Metered Energy minus the Regulation Energy is not equal to the DayAhead Scheduled Energy, then the Realtime Performance Metric is set to zero (0).



The Realtime Performance Metric is not applied during the time when a resource is Starting Up, Shutting Down, in an MSG Transition Period crossing over a Forbidden Operating Region, or the time period for which a Dispatch Operating Point correction is performed due to a verbal Dispatch Instruction issued by the CAISO Operator, as long as the resource is in fact in the operational mode instructed by the CAISO.



The Performance Metric Tolerance Band shall be applied to the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor and the RealTime Performance Metric calculations.



The Performance Metric Tolerance Band shall consist of the Tolerance Band plus an additional ramping tolerance.



For each Settlement Interval, the ramping tolerance is the difference between

the Energy calculated based on the linear curve between two applicable Dispatch Operating Targets; and

Expected Energy over the two applicable Dispatch Intervals.



The Tolerance Band is expressed in terms of Energy (MWh) for Generating Units, System Units and imports from Dynamic System Resources for each Settlement Interval and equals the greater of the absolute value of:

five (5) MW divided by the number of Settlement Intervals per Settlement Period or

three (3) percent of the relevant Generating Unit’s, Dynamic System Resource’s or System Unit’s maximum output (PMax), as registered in the Master File, divided by the number of Settlement Intervals per Settlement Period.



The maximum output (PMax) of a Dynamic System Resource will be established by agreement between the CAISO and the Scheduling Coordinator representing the Dynamic System Resource on an individual case basis, taking into account the number and size of the generating resources, or allocated portions of generating resources, that comprise the Dynamic System Resource. (Fact)



If for any given Settlement Interval, the absolute value of the resource’s Metered Energy less its Regulation Energy less the minimum of the DayAhead Schedule Energy and Expected Energy, is less than or equal to the Performance Metric Tolerance Band, then the CAISO will not apply the DayAhead Metered Energy Adjustment Factor to the IFM Energy Bid Cost or the IFM Market Revenue.



If for a given Settlement Interval the absolute value of the resource’s Metered Energy, less its Regulation Energy and less its Expected Energy, is less than or equal to the Performance Metric Tolerance Band, then the CAISO will not apply the RealTime Performance Metric to the calculation of the RTM Energy Bid Cost, RUC and RTM Minimum Load Cost, or RTM Market Revenue.



The Persistent Deviation Metric is a threshold measurement used to evaluate a resource’s change in output between Settlement Intervals relative to the changed Dispatch by the CAISO between Settlement Intervals.



The Persistent Deviation Metric shall be applied by Settlement Interval and shall be applied for the twentyfour fiveminute Settlement Intervals that comprise the previous two Trading Hours.



Thus, the evaluation window is a rolling two hours, incrementing in hourly Settlement Intervals.



The Persistent Deviation Metric for each Settlement Interval (t) is measured as the ratio of:

Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1), less the Metered Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t); and

Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1), less the Expected Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t), and less the Regulation Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t).



The CAISO will modify the Bid Cost Recovery calculations and Residual Imbalance Energy payments to address persistent deviations that expand Bid Cost Recovery payments beyond what is necessary for purposes of ensuring Bid Cost Recovery.



The CAISO will calculate the Persistent Deviation Metric and evaluate each resource’s response to a CAISO Dispatch in each Settlement Interval relative to the Persistence Deviation Metric Threshold.



The Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold evaluation will be based on the number of Settlement Intervals flagged within a rolling twoTrading Hour window.



The CAISO will flag each Settlement Interval pursuant to the following threshold conditions and apply the Persistent Deviation Metric pursuant to a set of rules for evaluating the resource's performance relative to the Performance Deviation Metric Threshold.



 Case 1 
The CAISO will flag a Settlement Interval (t):

if Expected Energy is greater than DayAhead Scheduled Energy in that Settlement Interval (t), the Metered Energy is greater than the Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t), and the Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1) is less than the Expected Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t); and

if the Metered Energy less, Regulation Energy, less Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t) is greater than ten (10) percent of the amount the resource can be Dispatched at full ramp over the Settlement Interval (t) and the Persistent Deviation Metric is greater than one hundred and ten (110) percent.



 Case 2 
The CAISO will flag a Settlement Interval (t):

if the Expected Energy exceeds the DayAhead Schedule Energy in that Settlement Interval (t), and Metered Energy exceeds the Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t) and Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1) exceeds the Expected Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t); and

if the Metered Energy less the Regulation Energy and less Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t) is greater than ten (10) percent of the amount the resource can be Dispatched at full ramp over the Settlement Interval (t) and the Persistent Deviation Metric is less than ninety (90) percent.



 Case 3 
The CAISO will flag a Settlement Interval (t):

if the Expected Energy is less than the DayAhead Schedule Energy, and Metered Energy is less than the Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t), and Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1) is less than the Expected Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t); and

if the Metered Energy less Regulation Energy less Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t) is greater than ten percent (10) of the amount the unit could be Dispatched at full ramp over the Settlement Interval (t) and the Persistent Deviation Metric is less than ninety (90) percent.



 Case 4 
The CAISO will flag a Settlement Interval (t):

if the Expected Energy is less than the DayAhead Schedule Energy, and Metered Energy is less than the Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t), and Metered Energy in the prior Settlement Interval (t1) is greater than the Expected Energy in the given Settlement Interval (t); and

if the Metered Energy less Regulation Energy less Expected Energy in that Settlement Interval (t) is greater than (10) percent of the amount the resource can be Dispatched at full ramp over the Settlement Interval (t) and the Persistent Deviation Metric is greater than one hundred and ten (110) percent.



The ISO will apply the following rules to evaluate the resource’s performance relative to the Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold and will apply any attendant bid cost basis modification specified with each rule.



 Rule 1 
If six (6) or fewer Settlement Intervals out of the previous twenty four (24) Settlement Intervals of the rolling twoTrading Hour persistent deviation evaluation window are flagged as exceeding the Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold, then:

the RTM Energy Bid Costs will be based on the applicable Energy Bid price, as mitigated, and

Residual Imbalance Energy is settled based on the reference hour Energy Bid.



 Rule 2 
If seven (7) or more Settlement Intervals of the previous twenty four (24) Settlement Intervals of the rolling twoTrading Hour persistent deviation evaluation window are flagged as exceeding the Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold, then for all the previous twenty four (24) Settlement Intervals in the twohour window:

the RTM Energy Bid Costs

for Optimal Energy above the DayAhead Scheduled Energy will be based on the lesser of the applicable Default Energy Bid price, the applicable Energy Bid price, as mitigated, or the applicable FMM or RTD Locational Marginal Price, and

for Optimal Energy below the DayAhead Scheduled Energy the greater of the applicable Default Energy Bid price, the applicable Energy Bid price, as mitigated, or the applicable FMM or RTD Locational Marginal Price; and

the Residual Imbalance Energy Bid Cost

for Residual Imbalance Energy above the DayAhead Scheduled Energy will be based on the lesser of the applicable Default Energy Bid price, the relevant Energy Bid Price, as mitigated, or the applicable RTD Locational Marginal Price, and

for Residual Imbalance Energy below the DayAhead Schedule Energy will be based on the greater of the applicable Default Energy Bid price, the relevant Energy Bid Price, or the applicable RTD Locational Marginal Price.



 Rule 3 
Once a Settlement Interval is flagged as exceeding the Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold, it remains flagged when it is considered in the subsequent rolling twoTrading Hour evaluation window and its bid basis qualification for that Settlement Interval will not change.



 Rule 4 
If a Settlement Interval’s bid basis is determined by the Rule 1 above in a previous evaluation and it has not been flagged, it can be redetermined and flagged pursuant to the additional rules in a subsequent rolling twoTrading Hour evaluation window based on the Persistent Deviation Metric Threshold.
