Call for Comments for the Proposed Amendments to the WESM Rules and the Dispatch Protocol Manual regarding the Maximum Available Capacity (ORCP-WR-WM-22-08)
Tue, 29 Nov 2022

The Rules Change Committee (RCC) is inviting all WESM Members and interested parties to submit comments to the Philippine Electricity Market Corporation's (PEMC) Proposed Amendments to the WESM Rules and the Dispatch Protocol Manual regarding the Maximum Available Capacity (ORCP-WR-WM-22-08).

The proposal seeks to provide a clearer guidance and include other conditions (e.g., circuit breaker status, ramp rates) that shall be considered by the Trading Participants when offering/bidding or revising/updating offers in the market. The proposed amendments specifically aim to:

  • have a clearer definition of maximum available capacity;
  • provide guidance when offering/bidding or revising/updating of offers, which should be equal to the maximum available capacity;
  • require Trading Participants to revise offers/bids if they do not reflect reasonable estimates of the unit’s maximum available capacity; and
  • include other conditions (e.g., circuit breaker status, ramp rates) in revising/updating offers.

 

The documents proposed to be amended are the following:

  1. WESM Rules
  2. WESM Manual on Dispatch Protocol

 

You can download a copy of the discussion paper and matrix of the proposed amendments from the proposal webpage.

Kindly submit your comments (in Word format) through the File a Submission page no later than 09 January 2023 or 30 working days from the date of publication (23November 2022). Please input in the proper field the e-mail address of your point person(s) with whom we could further contact regarding activities related to the processing of the proposal.

Kindly direct any questions and clarifications to mag_rrd@wesm.ph. Thank you.
