Binding Constraints

Provides binding constraint information for each Day-Ahead Market solution for each Operating Day. Posting is updated each day after the DA Market results are posted.

Column Descriptions

  •         Interval Hour-ending of the day-ahead solution in which constraint was binding (Central Time)
  •         GMTIntervalEnd Hour-ending of the day-ahead solution in which constraint was binding (GMT)
  •         Constraint Name Name of constraint provided by the Market Clearing Engine.  This is primarily the flowgate name.  If constraint is not a defined flowgate, this will be the branch name from the model.
  •         Constraint Type
  •     FG Flowgate
  •        MA Constraint identified by operator as being congested in the DA Market solution
  •       MCE Constraint identified within the Market Clearing Engine and verified by Operator
  •         NERCID Existing defined NERCID if available
  •         State Binding or Breached
  •         Shadow Price Calculated DA Market Shadow Price for Constraint
  •         Monitored Facility Line or Transformer that is binding or breached in the solution (From station To station format for direction of binding)
  •         Contingent Facility Line or Transformer that if outaged will cause the Monitored Facility to be binding or breached in the solution. BASE corresponds to no contingent element causing the binding or breached state.
