    • Imbalance conformance enhancements
      This initiative will clarify the ISO’s authority to conform for imbalance in both real time and the day ahead markets. The purpose of conforming is to maintain reliability of the bulk electric grid. It will also propose enhancements for the conformance limiter. The purpose of the limiter is to ensure price spikes do not result from artificial market infeasibilities.
    • Integrated balancing authority areas
      The California ISO is holding stakeholder discussions on the ISO's efforts to model the systems of Integrated Balancing Authority Areas (IBAA) under the ISO's Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade (MRTU) program. The ISO MRTU program encompasses a comprehensive overhaul of the ISO electricity markets designed to both enhance reliability and increase the efficient utilization of the transmission system. As part of its larger effort to improve its ability to reliably manage congestion on the transmission system, the ISO has identified needed improvements to how it models and prices transactions to and from IBAA. IBAA are those Balancing Authority Areas or systems that are not part of the ISO Balancing Authority Area but are closely interconnected/integrated with the ISO's system.
    • Interconnection requirements review
      To maintain system reliability on an ongoing basis, changes are required to the ISO interconnection requirements to accommodate increasing amounts of variable generation. This initiative proposes modifications to the operating power factor, voltage control, disturbance ride through, and generation management parameters for asynchronous generators, such as wind and solar resources. These requirements will be incorporated in interconnection agreements, if approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and will make the technical requirements for these variable generation technologies more consistent with those of conventional generators.
