Scheduling and Dispatch Parameters Consultation Paper 2021

Under section 10A of EirGrid’s Transmission System Operator (TSO) Licence, and section 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 May 2020 the RAs requested the MO to review the following parameters utilised in Scheduling and Dispatch:

  1. Long Notice Adjustment Factor (LNAF)
  2. System Imbalance Flattening Factor (SIFF)

On 21st August 2020, the RAs received reports from the MO outlining their recommendations for the proposed values for the above parameters. The purpose of this consultation paper is to invite comments on the MO proposals as summarised in this paper and detailed within the MO reports which accompany this paper.

All comments should be received by close of business on 16th October 2020. A final decision on the parameters consulted upon this paper is due to be published in November 2020.
