D-2 CWE Net Position Forecasting Go-Live

13/03/2017

The Net Position Forecast (NPF) process Parallel Run, started on 21st of February, was executed successfully during almost 3 weeks. In this period, Coreso operators computed daily the Likely Market Directions (NTC corners) for the CWE area (France, Belgium, Austria, Germany and Netherlands).

From March 13th, Coreso took over the task of Elia operators for the computation of NTC corners every evening and uses the NPF process output for the Flow-Based qualification. This new Coreso process concerns ‘NP forecast definition’ for Elia only, process with SSC did not change. The process will run at Coreso, in normal conditions, between 20:30 and 21:30 (target time is set to 21:00 and the critical deadline is at 23:00). A manual back-up procedure using the results of the reference day is foreseen in order to ensure the continuity of the service.
