NERC BAL-003-1 (Frequency Response Standard) has two main objectives: To require sufficient Frequency Response from the Balancing Authority (BA) to maintain Interconnection Frequency within predefined bounds by arresting frequency deviations and supporting frequency until the frequency is restored to its scheduled value; and to provide consistent methods for measuring Frequency Response and determining the Frequency Bias Setting.
