Trading and Settlement Code Scheduling and Dispatch Parameters for 2020 Decision Paper

14 November 2019

Under the terms of the SEM Trading and Settlement Code (TSC) Part B, the Regulatory Authorities (RAs) shall determine certain parameters proposed by the  Transmission System Operator (TSO) in relation to the Scheduling and Dispatch process.

In May 2019 the RAs requested the TSO to review the following parameters utilised in Scheduling and Dispatch:

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

On 31st August 2019, the RAs received a report from the TSO outlining their recommendations for the proposed values for the above parameters. The RAs then published a consultation paper on the 16th September (SEM-19-050), consulting on the TSO’s recommendations. This paper presents the SEM Committee’s decision in relation to these parameters considering stakeholder comments.
