Regarding calculation and adjustment of permissible hourly values of exports and imports from/to Burshtyn TPP Island and IPS of Ukraine
Based on operational information on the condition of generating equipment at the Burshtyn TPP and operational information on the operational security of the IPS of Ukraine, PrJSC NPC Ukrenergo calculates and adjusts the permissible hourly values of exports and imports from/to Burshtyn TPP Island and the IPS of Ukraine in the context of each operator of external flows (exporters and importers) according to the pro rata principle of capacity allocated at interconnectors of Burshtyn TPP Island and the IPS of Ukraine.
The following laws and regulations are applied:
1. Law of Ukraine on the Electricity Market. Article 38. General principles of congestion management:
“2. Where scheduled commercial exchanges are not compatible with secure network operation, the transmission system operator shall alleviate congestion in compliance with the requirements of network operational security while endeavouring to ensure that any associated costs remain at an economically efficient level. Curative re-dispatching or counter trading shall be envisaged in case lower cost measures cannot be applied.”
2. NEURC Resolution No. 763 dated 03.04.2020, Clause 9.2.4:
“9.2.4. The curtailment applies to PTRs for the corresponding periods on a pro rata basis, regardless of the period of use of the product. If PTR is curtailed after the nomination deadline, the curtailment is applied on a pro rata basis to the nominated PTRs.”
When determining the PTR curtailment volume according to the pro rata principle, the value is rounded to the nearest larger integer for each holder of the PTR.
3. Regarding reporting for the billing period to state authorities.
In order to timely generate and provide to the customs authorities of Ukraine, the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of Ukraine, and the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine the data and information about the volumes of electricity transmitted during reporting periods from/to the IPS of Ukraine to/from the power systems of neighbouring countries, it is necessary to submit a form filled in according to the instructions (below) to the e-mail addresses by and including the 3rd day of the month following the reporting month: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
