Final Operational Notification (FON)
European Union Electricity Market Glossary

 


 

 

Final Operational Notification (FON) is a notification issued by the relevant system operator to a power generating facility owner, demand facility owner, distribution system operator or HVDC system owner who complies with the relevant specifications and requirements, allowing them to operate respectively a power generating module, demand facility, distribution system or HVDC system by using the grid connection (Article 2(62) of the Network Code on Requirements for Grid Connection of Generators (NC RfG)).

 

 

 

Article 36 of the Network Code on Requirements for Grid Connection of Generators

Final operational notification for type D power generating modules

 

1. A FON shall entitle the power generating facility owner to operate a power generating module by using the grid connection.

 

2. A FON shall be issued by the relevant system operator, upon prior removal of all incompatibilities identified for the purpose of ION status and subject to completion of the data and study review process as required by this Article.

 

3. For the purposes of the data and study review, the power generating facility owner must submit the following to the relevant system operator:

(a) an itemised statement of compliance; and

(b) an update of applicable technical data, simulation models and studies as referred to in points (b), (d) and (e) of Article 35(3), including the use of actual measured values during testing.

 

4. If incompatibility is identified in connection with the issuing of the FON, a derogation may be granted upon a request made to the relevant system operator, in accordance with the derogation procedure described in Title V. A FON shall be issued by the relevant system operator if the power generating module complies with the provisions of the derogation.

 

Where a request for derogation is rejected, the relevant system operator shall have the right to refuse to allow the operation of the power generating module until the power generating facility owner and the relevant system operator resolve the incompatibility and the relevant system operator considers that the power generating module complies with the provisions of this Regulation.

 

If the relevant system operator and the power generating facility owner do not resolve the incompatibility within a reasonable timeframe, but in any case not later than six months after the notification of the rejection of the request for derogation, each party may refer the issue for decision to the regulatory authority.

 

 

 

 

A FON is also present in the provisions of the Network Code on Demand Connection (see box).

 

 

 

Article 25
 of the Network Code on Demand Connection

Final operational notification

 

1. FON shall entitle the transmission-connected demand facility owner or transmission-connected distribution system operator to operate the transmission-connected demand facility, the transmission-connected distribution facility or the transmission-connected distribution system by using the grid connection.

 

2. A FON shall be issued by the relevant TSO, upon prior removal of all incompatibilities identified for the purposes of the ION status and subject to the completion of the data and study review process as required by this Article.

 

3. For the purposes of the data and study review, the transmission-connected demand facility owner or transmission-connected distribution system operator must submit the following to the relevant TSO:
(a) an itemised statement of compliance; and
(b) an update of the applicable technical data, simulation models and studies as referred to in points (b), (d) and (e) of Article 24(3), including the use of actual measured values during testing.

 

4. If incompatibility is identified in connection with the issuing of the FON, a derogation may be granted upon a request made to the relevant TSO, in accordance with the derogation procedure described in Chapter 2 of Title V. A FON shall be issued by the relevant TSO if the transmission-connected demand facility, the transmission-connected distribution facility, or the transmission-connected distribution system complies with the provisions of the derogation.

Where a request for a derogation is rejected, the relevant TSO shall have the right to refuse to allow the operation of the transmission-connected demand facility, the transmission-connected distribution facility, or the transmission-connected distribution system until the transmission-connected demand facility owner or transmission-connected distribution system operator and the relevant TSO resolve the incompatibility and the relevant TSO considers that the transmission-connected demand facility, the transmission-connected distribution facility, or the transmission-connected distribution system complies with the provisions of this Regulation.

If the relevant TSO and the transmission-connected demand facility owner or transmission-connected distribution system operator do not resolve the incompatibility within a reasonable time frame, but in any case not later than six months after the notification of the rejection of the request for a derogation, each party may refer the issue for decision to the regulatory authority.

 

 

 

Further details concerning the FON procedure are to be specified and made publicly available by the relevant Transmission System Operator (TSO) - Article 22(3) of the DCC.
