This page has information for generators outside of the PJM footprint that want to deliver their output into the PJM territory.
When a generator within one balancing authority agrees to deliver power into another, it can choose to electrically transfer its output into the attaining balancing authority and thereby make itself available for dispatch by the attaining balancing authority. This is called a dynamic transfer. As a dynamic transfer, a unit can elect to either dynamically schedule or pseudo tie into an attaining balancing authority.

Dynamic Transfer Requests
If requested, PJM will provide a copy of the results of the Electrical Distance and Market-to-Market Flowgate Tests as well as related work papers to the extent that providing such work papers does not violate confidentiality agreements in place nor reveal market sensitive information.
Also, if requested, PJM will meet with each pseudo-tie applicant to discuss specific modeling assumptions and the results of the Electrical Distance and Market-to-Market Flowgate Tests for the individual pseudo-tie applicant.
This is a reading or value used to schedule generation, often jointly-owned, between balancing authorities. It is subject to North American Electric Reliability Corporation tagging rules.
A unit may decide to dynamically schedule, instead of pseudo tying, because the owner does not hold long-term firm transmission service.

This is a reading or value used as a “virtual” connection to a grid operator when no physical tie exists. The native balancing authority removes the unit from its calculations to schedule generation, and the attaining balancing authority adds it to its own. Pseudo ties currently are not subject to NERC tagging rules, and they must register with the North American Energy Standards Board to assist with interregional congestion management.
A unit may decide to pseudo tie, instead of dynamically scheduling, because the resource is seeking a capacity import limit exception in PJM’s reliability pricing model.
