ACER Recommendation on reasoned amendments to the Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management Regulation proposes changes to a wide range of topics, including amendments to the SOGL
Various amendments to the SOGL stem out directly from the revisions of the CACM Regulation. In particular:
The Network Code on System Operation have been designed by ENTSO-E, which merged into one legislative document the earlier three draft codes for operation in normal conditions (relating to operational security, operational planning & scheduling and load-frequency control & reserves).
The Network Code on System Operation lays down detailed guidelines on:
(a) requirements and principles concerning operational security;
(b) rules and responsibilities for the coordination and data exchange between:
- TSOs and Distribution System Operators (DSOs), and
- TSOs or DSOs and Significant Grid Users (SGUs);
in operational planning and in close to real-time operation;
(c) rules for training and certification of system operator employees;
(d) requirements on outage coordination;
(e) requirements for scheduling between the TSOs' control areas; and
(f) rules aiming at the establishment of a Union framework for load-frequency control and reserves.
