Scheduling and Dispatch Parameters 2022 Decision Paper 

Under Condition 10A of EirGrid’s Transmission System Operator (TSO) Licence, and Condition 22A of SONI’s Transmission System Operator Licence, the System Operator (SO) is required to report to the Regulatory Authorities (RAs) proposing values for parameters to be applied in the Scheduling and Dispatch process.

In June 2021 the RAs requested the TSOs to review the following parameters utilised in Scheduling and Dispatch:

1.       Long Notice Adjustment Factor (LNAF)

2.       System Imbalance Flattening Factor (SIFF)

On 30 July 2021, the RAs received a report from the TSOs outlining their recommendations for the proposed values for the above parameters. The RAs then published a consultation on 20 August 2021 (SEM-21-068) on the TSO’s recommendations. This paper presents the SEM Committee’s decision in relation to these parameters
