### Nodal Settlement Delta Calculations and Statements

• Objective: Describe the recommended design of nodal settlement delta calculations and statements.

### What is the problem?

• Zonal Settlement System produces excessive interval data of questionable value to ERCOT and Market Participants

### Zero Data Statistics(Production Lodestar Database as of 4/26/05)

Zonal Settlements System Architecture Stress Test Results

### Current Settlements System Characteristics

• Always produce 5 output interval cuts regardless of value

• PRICE, QUANTITY, AMOUNT, BILLAMT, BILLQTY

• Force PRICE X QUANTITY format

• Deltas (BILLQTY, BILLAMT) calculated at interval level

• Zero data calculated at interval level and calculated for deltas

• Statements repeat previous settlement data

### Regulation Up Service Charge - LARU

• LARUAMT = (PCRUAMTew + PCOOMRUAMTew) / (RULRSOBew – RUSAQew) * (RULRSOBqse – RUSAQqse)

• LARUPRICE = (PCRUAMTew + PCOOMRUAMTew) / (RULRSOBew – RUSAQew)

• LARUQTY = (RULRSOBqse – RUSAQqse)

• LARUAMT = LARUPRICE * LARUQTY

• LARUBILLQTY = Current LARUQTY – Previous LARUQTY

• LARUBILLAMT = Current LARUAMT – Previous LARUAMT

### Current Settlements System Example

First Settlement Run

Formula: D_AMT = (A + B) * C

Input Interval Cut A = 5,4,6,5,4

Input Interval Cut B = 0,0,0,0,0

Input Interval Cut C = 2,2,2,2,2

Forced PRICE*QTY -> D_QTY = A + B, D_PRICE = C

Output Interval Cut D_QTY = 5,4,6,5,4

Output Interval Cut D_PRICE = 2,2,2,2,2

Output Interval Cut D_AMT = 10,8,12,10,8

Total = 48

Output Interval Cut D_BILLQTY = 5,4,6,5,4

Output Interval Cut D_BILLAMT = 10,8,12,10,8

Total = 48

### Current Settlements System Example

Second Settlement Run

Formula for D_AMT = (A + B) * C

Input Interval Cut A = 5,4,6,5,4

Input Interval Cut B = 1,1,1,1,1

Input Interval Cut C = 2,2,2,2,2

Forced PRICE*QTY -> D_QTY = A + B, D_PRICE = C

Output Interval Cut D_QTY = 6,5,7,6,5

Output Interval Cut D_PRICE = 2,2,2,2,2

Output Interval Cut D_AMT = 12,10,14,12,10

Total = 58

Output Interval Cut D_BILLQTY = 1,1,1,1,1

Output Interval Cut D_BILLAMT = 2,2,2,2,2

Total = 10

### Current Settlements System Inefficiencies

• Input interval cuts are restated as PRICE and QTY cuts

• Deltas (BILLQTY, BILLAMT) calculated at interval level (15min, hourly)

• Excessive interval data

• Zero data calculated at interval level and calculated for deltas

• High zero data overhead, excessive interval data

### Nodal Protocol Needs

Increased number of charge and payment types to process

• 55 to 80 →More data

• Lower granularity of settlement output

• Settlement Points, RUC →More data

• Increased use of interim calculations

• More data

• New statements and invoices

______________________________________

= Differing Architectural Needs for Nodal Settlement and Billing System

• ### Nodal Settlements System Design Proposal

• Simplify data requirements while still giving the Market what they need – we need to be lean and efficient

• No PRICE and QTY cuts

• Inputs and Outputs specified in Nodal Protocols

• No BILLQTY delta cut

• Quantity cuts do not exist in Nodal Protocols so we will not create them nor the corresponding delta cut

• BILLAMT delta cut NOT at interval level

• BILLAMT calculated at Trade Date summary level

• Zero AMT output saved at Trade Date summary level unless non-zero values sum to zero

• No zero amount interval data when every interval is zero

• Statements will not repeat previous settlement data

• Statements roll up charges/payments to statement recipient level (even if charges/payments are at SPP or Resource Node level)

• All Input and Output data available in extracts
