Impacts on FGD (Flue Gas Desulfurization) on U.S. electric reliability and adequacy through 2000 were evaluated. Coal-fired units on-line before 1986 and between 1985 and 2000 were considered for the nine National Electric Reliability Council (NERC) regions. Each region's ability to meet power demand (with reasonable and typical reserves) as a power pool with and without FGD was assessed. Different FGD module configurations and assumed availabilities were considered. Power interchange capabilities which might be used during FGD-induced outages were also evaluated, as were reserves. It was concluded that a revised NSPS would have little effect on system adequacy before 1985. By 2000, however, the NSPS would have a significant impact on reliability and adequacy, requiring large amounts of additional generation to offset the effects of FGD. Sensitivity of these results was analyzed and mitigating measures were determined.
