Frequency Instability Problems in North American Interconnections - DOE/NETL-2011/1473 Great survey on reserves,  NERC mandates, and mandates at individual ISO/RTOs  (such as droop characteristics)
The Value of Flexible Generation - B. Kirby Another great survey - short and very readable.  The remarks on prices in real-time and day-ahead markets are interesting, but don't be fooled!
