Winter 2019/2020 Capability Verification Tests
  • eGADS
Please share within your organization

Actions Requested

  • Share this communication internally within your organization to anyone who may need this information.

The Winter Verification Test Period runs from December 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020. All units in the PJM Capacity Market must test to their Winter Installed Capacity (Winter ICAP) during this time. Alternatively, data used to satisfy the 2019 Summer Capability Verification Test may be used to satisfy the winter test requirements after adjustments to the appropriate winter conditions. Additionally, all units, with the exception of hydroelectric, pumped hydroelectric, fuel cell and reciprocating engine generators, must correct their test data to winter conditions.

If you are using a 2019 summer test, corrected for winter conditions to satisfy the winter test requirements as permitted in Manual 21, please ensure that the rated values in the test submittal show winter temperatures/relative humidity and/or winter circulating water temps that are coincident with the last 15 years winter peaks (PJM peak history can be found at this link).

Please ensure that your test times render two hour test durations (exactly) for steam units (Coal/Oil/Gas, Nuclear, and Combined Cycle units and components) or one hour test durations (exactly) for all other unit types.

If you are using actual winter operating data or have actually performed a winter test, the test start time must be no earlier than 12/1/2019 @ 0000 hours or the test end time must be no later than 3/1/2020 @0000.

If you are correcting a 2019 summer verification test to winter conditions to meet the requirement, please use a start time of 12/2/2019@0000 hours for the test and end it one or two hours later based on the unit type test duration.

The due date for data submission is March 20, 2020. All derating events associated with failed tests must also be input by March 20, 2020. Any generator not submitting a winter test, without due cause, will be considered 100% forced out for the entire winter period of December 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020.

There is no tolerance given to test results. All units must test to their exact Winter Installed Capacity Value or greater.

When a unit fails its verification test, a derating event should be placed in GADS to cover the deficiency. If this is done by the operator, the test result and the derating amount will be added and then compared to the Total ICAP Commitment Amount. If the derating is input by PJM, only the test result will be compared to the Total ICAP Commitment Amount and could result in an ICAP Shortfall leading to a Generation Resource Rating Test Failure Charge.

The rules for verification testing can be found in Manual 21 at this link:  https://www.pjm.com/-/media/documents/manuals/m21.ashx
