The implementation timeline for a flow-based method for capacity calculation is dependent on successful parallel runs and confirmation from the Nordic NRAs. The parallel operations have been divided into phases (parallel runs).
Each phase has TSO-defined entry criteria, based on the guidance from NRAs. The entry criteria for the EPR start have been set. Entry criteria for each phase is the same as the exit criteria for the previous phase. More information on the criteria for the External parallel run (pdf)
According to stipulated timeline, the external parallel operation must last for at least 12 months. The NRA reporting consists of three month of data.
External parallel run have started
The Nordic TSOs and the Nordic RSC jointly decided to start the external parallel run (EPR) of the Nordic flow-based methodology on 7 March 2022 for the Energy Delivery Day of 8 March 2022.
Please note that the parallel run will generate data that can used as a basis to facilitate the adaptation of planning tools and/or business processes of all stakeholders concerned.
External parallel run data
During the EPR, the flow-based parameters will be calculated and published daily on the JAO publication tool website: https://test-publicationtool.jao.eu/nordic. Also, results from the first market simulations are now available.
Update on 5 July 2022: Information regarding publication of parallel run data during summer 2022
The EPR Market reports for week 14 and 15 market will be published in mid-July. No additional market reports will be published during the summer period.
Simulation Facility (SF) is undergoing extended maintenance after an upgrade to version 4.0, causing delays in running simulations. After the upgrade, it will be essential to test and validate the SF in order to operate it for the the Nordic EPR. SF is as of now still not available for Nordic EPR operations. The relevant Nordic RCC/TSO personnel required to test and validate the upgraded version are now on summer vacation.
We will update you on additional publications in the beginning of August.
SF output data: physical flows, prices and net positions from simulation results of the Nordic flow-based market coupling
Update on 31 May 2022: Please note that the physical flow data and scheduled exchanges data has been removed from the result files for weeks 10 to 15 due to an error. We are investigating the root cause and will provide you with an update as soon as we have resolved the issue. We apologise for the inconvenience.
