There are two objectives for Phase-3 of the DOE-CERTS supported research on Frequency Response performance and reliability standards adequacy. The first Phase-3 objective is to investigate automatic methods to identify interconnections frequency events by extending and validating the approach recommended by Florida Region Representatives and using phasor 1-second frequency data. The second Phase-3 objective is to research a methodology to automatically estimate and validate the Frequency Response for the events identified within the first objective. This is accomplished by: using the Frequency Response Standard Drafting Team (FRSDT) definitions of frequency events for locations of points A, B and C; and the Balancing Authority (BA) with the highest ACE during frequency events or ACE for the contingent BA.
