Dynamic Scheduling

Dynamic Scheduling Spinning Reserve (DSSpinRes), Dynamic Scheduling Contingency Reserve (DSConRes), and Dynamic Scheduling Regulation Reserve (DSRegRes) are Firm transmission used for the real-time delivery of operating reserves to the Receiving Control Area. As such, it is only available on exports to the US from the BC Hydro Balancing Authority. DSSpinRes, DSConRes, and DSRegRes are not available for purchase on OASIS but can be designated from existing Firm transmission.

Currently, BC hydro is able to facilitate Dynamic Scheduling with the California ISO. As such, the following shows limits along the path from British Columbia to California and the status of the RIG communication system.
