New sources of ancillary services are expected in the power system. For large and conventional generation units the dynamic response is well understood and detailed individual measurement is feasible, which factors in to the straightforward performance requirements applied today. For secure power system operation, a reliable service delivery is required, yet it may not be appropriate to apply conventional performance
requirements to new technologies and methods. The service performance requirements and assessment methods therefore need to be generalized and standardized in order to include future ancillary service sources. This paper develops a modeling method for ancillary services performance requirements, including performance and verification indices. The use of the modeling method and the indices is exemplified in two case studies.
