nodal update key items
Nodal Update – Key Items
  • Jim Galvin, Chair of SEWG presented the Nodal update
  • Market Trials Phase 4 – Very successful!
  • Basic Nodal Training has been scheduled and can be found at the following link for updated available training

http://nodal.ercot.com/training/courses/index.html

  • Market Trails 5.0 is back on schedule.
    • Integrated Credit Management targeted for May-June timeframe
  • No new Risk or Issue items added to the Nodal Program Risks and Issues list
nodal program status
NODAL PROGRAM STATUS
  • Qualification of Market Participants- 95% of MPs qualified:
    • 81 of 84 QSEs with resources qualified
    • 181 of 192 QSEs without resources qualified
  • Full Functionality testing to begin in May will result in push to get remaining QSEs qualified
  • Market Trials:
    • 2-CRR Auctions now completed
    • Three DAM markets simulated with two additional this week
    • Strong participation in DAM trials (over 150 QSEs)
ccwg working group update
CCWG Working Group Update
  • RSS Feeds on ERCOT.com – in place on www.ercot.com – select “ feeds”
  • CCWG Completed modifications to COPMG Section 5 and Appendix A for Market Participants Notifications – currently in 21 day comment period
  • Continued development of Creating Section 8.1 Settlement Statements and Invoices (currently tabled at CCWG)
sewg update
SEWG Update
  • SEWG
  • Focused on Nodal
  • Reviewing Extract issues
  • Completed review of UFE analysis as requested by MP. Additional analysis will be completed as ongoing work.
  • Nodal Settlement Algorithms – guide to be created
nodal settlement algorithms sample
NODAL SETTLEMENT ALGORITHMS- SAMPLE

Description

The Day-Ahead Energy Payment is made for all cleared offers (excluding offers submitted for the RMR Units) to sell energy in the DAM, whether through three part supply offers or DAM Energy-Only Offer Curves. The payment to each QSE for each settlement point is calculated on an hourly interval.

Calculations

Calculate Day-Ahead Energy Sale Amount by QSE and Settlement Point for each Operating Hour of the Operating Day.

Calculate Day-Ahead Energy Sale Amount QSE Total per QSE by QSE for each Operating Hour of the Operating Day.

sewg ufe upcoming discussions
SEWG – UFE, UPCOMING DISCUSSIONS
  • Significant cold weather events in February with high prices as well
    • Average temperature 42.00 compared to 55.71 in 2009 and 50.10 30-year average
  • Cost and percentage statistics will be provided in April SEWG meeting
  • SEWG and PWG will continue to discuss and analyze UFE as part of joint sessions in the SEWG meetings
  • Discussions may continue on the allocation factors for UFE, however, it does not appear that consensus from one particular group (SEWG or PWG) will bring the issue to a PRR
pwg update
PWG Update
  • As part of PWG Goals for 2010, PWG has removed “Review Weather Sensitivity Correlation and Proxy Day Method in Lieu of AMS” – ERCOT resources, system changes needed to complete.
    • Cannot be completed until after Nodal.
slide10
PWG needs feedback from REPs on incremental cost of updating round 2 models vs. benefits;

No model updates at all are needed, or

Re-estimate existing load profiling model coefficients, or

Build models with new structures to address weather transitions per UFE presentation “profile discontinuity”, or

New round 3 samples in TDSP areas that are not installing AMS or have later timelines, and

Profile model transition likely to be needed due to difference in round 2 sample population mean to current profile models just like the last model implementation?

Is ERCOT forecast of load profiles needed after AMS implementation?

No feedback was provided by MPs prior to the 3/24 PWG

Mtg. Further discussions for next PWG Mtg.

PWG Update –

New Load Profile Model implementation

slide11
A draft PRR was presented by Direct Energy proposing that both IDR and NIDR distribution metered premises have an equal allocation factor of 0.5

a. No consensus

b. Discuss about the relative allocation of transmission vs. distribution

c. AMIT stakeholders discussed and decided no action

d. PWG and SEWG discussions continue.

PWG Update - UFE Allocation – Status!
