WESM OPERATIONS

INTRODUCTION


A clear definition and delineation of responsibilities are necessary to ensure the reliable operation of
the grid, especially with the Market Operator (MO) and the System Operator (SO) being two separate
entities.
As a result, the WESM Manual on the Dispatch Protocol was formulated after rigorous discussions
between MO and SO.
The Dispatch Protocol
Clearly establishes the WESM Timetable for the execution of specific processes (WESM Rules 3.4.2
and 10.4.8.1)
Establish scheduling and dispatch procedures to be followed in
-- Normal Conditions
-- Emergency Conditions
that should be consistent with the WESM Timetable and features of the MMS

Scheduling and Dispatch in the WESM





WESM was established as the trading platform of energy transactions.


WESM was also established as the central platform for the dispatch scheduling of generating facilities.
SO is still responsible in the dispatch of generating units at real-time.
MO has the responsibility of forecasting demand, and prepares a Security Constrained Economic
Dispatch (SCED) schedule of generators and loads based on the hourly demand bids and generation
offers.
MO also maintains a Market Network Model (MNM) which shall be used by the Market Dispatch
Optimization Model (MDOM), which shall be able to consider transmission constraints and losses.

Responsibilities in WESMs Scheduling and Dispatch


The MO, SO, and Trading Participants (TPs) are the three entities involved in the scheduling and dispatch of
generating facilities in WESM

WESM Timetable: RTD





The Hour-Ahead or Real-Time Dispatch (RTD) publishes schedules that shall be implemented by SO,
and spot prices that shall be used in the settlement of market transactions.
The RTD schedules are subject to the final screening of SO before a dispatch instruction is issued to a
Trading Participant.
The dispatch schedule is the target MW loading of all Trading Participants at the end of a trading interval.
RTD is executed every 55th minute of the hour.

LOAD FORECASTING

INTRODUCTION
Forecasting is a process of predicting market condition using historical data. In the WESM, we predict the
energy to be consumed in a certain area for a specific trading interval incorporating historical data, real time
grid system status, weather condition and events.This process is known as Load Forecasting. The provision
of load demand is necessary for the calculation of market prices and dispatch schedules. It is an integral
requirement of the market dispatch optimization model. The WESM Rules provide the calculation of market
projections and real-time schedules which require accurate load demand forecast information. The load
forecasting in the market has three time frames; namely hour-ahead, day-ahead and week-ahead
forecasting.
Hour-Ahead Forecast
The process of forecasting the load energy demand for next top of the hour. It is conducted every hour and
uses the latest real time grid system status, weather condition and events. The Ex-ante (Real-Time Dispatch
or RTD) utilizes this forecast.
Day-Ahead Forecast
The process of forecasting the load energy demand for the next day and is being updated every four hours
to accurately reflect the near real time load energy demand. The Day-Ahead Projection (DAP) utilizes this
forecast.
Week-Ahead Forecast
The process of forecasting the load energy demand for the next seven days. It is being updated daily. The
forecast output is an indicative figure for Market Participant bidding strategy and generator maintenance
scheduling. The Week-Ahead Projection (WAP) utilizes this forecast.

DEMAND FORECAST FOR MARKET PROJECTIONS


Week-Ahead and Day-Ahead Demand Forecasts

Hourly Demand Forecasts for each Forecast Area from the current day to the next seven days shall be
determined by the Market Operator using the Similar Day Load Forecast (SDLF) module of the Market
Management System (MMS).

The Demand Forecasts obtained in the week ahead forecast shall be used as Input Demand Forecasts
to obtain the WAP and the DAP.

The summation of the Net Load Forecast plus the losses computed for a Forecast Area after the
optimization process in the relevant market run (i.e. WAP or DAP) constitutes the Final Demand
Forecast for that Forecast Area.

Figure 9. SDLF Methodology Load Forecasting

DEMAND FORECAST FOR THE REAL-TIME DISPATCH RUNS

Hour-Ahead Forecasts

Demand Forecasts for the next hour in each Forecast Area shall be determined by the Market Operator
using the Load Predictor (LDP) module of the Market Management System.

The Demand Forecasts obtained in the hour-ahead forecast shall be used as Input Demand Forecasts to
obtain the Real-Time Dispatch (RTD).

The summation of the Net Load Forecast plus the losses computed for a Forecast Area after the
optimization process in the relevant RTD run constitutes the Final Demand Forecast for that Forecasted
Area.

Operational Market Reports


Marginal Plants
The Marginal Plant (MP) data presents information on the hourly Marginal Plants and their corresponding
price offers in the market.
The MP is the generating unit or plant whose price offer corresponds to the system marginal price for a given
trading interval.
In an unconstrained system, the market price is set by one MP (i.e., the system marginal price). This price is
adjusted for each node to consider transmission losses and/or congestion costs to come up with a resulting
value called the Locational Marginal Price (LMP).
Where the system is constrained, the relevant flows of electricity are affected as the line limitations arising
from the congestion may impede the supply of cheaper electricity from one area to another. In such cases,
there may be more than one MP setting the marginal price for the different nodes on either side of the
constraint.

Scheduling and Dispatch upon Establishment of WESM Operations


WESM was established as the central trading platform for the scheduling, dispatch, and net settlement of
generating facilities and loads in grids with WESM operations.

The Market Operator (MO), System Operator (SO), and Trading Participants (TPs) are the three entities
involved in the scheduling and dispatch of generating facilities in WESM.

The SO is responsible for the dispatch of generating units at real-time.

The MO has the responsibility of forecasting demand and the scheduling of generators and loads
based on hourly generation offers and demand bids through a Security-Constrained Economic Dispatch
(SCED).
The SCED of generators and loads are obtained using WESMs MDOM, which utilizes the MNM
maintained by the MO. As such, pricing and scheduling calculations are able to consider transmission
losses and constraints.

TPs are responsible for the following:


Submission of generation offers and/or demand bids.
Comply with the dispatch instructions.
