Organization of intraday trading

The organization of intraday trading is described in the authorized Electricity Market Code, chapter 3, from the Energy Control Commission or Energie Control GmbH.

All time series within a schedule message related to the same neighbouring control zone shall be considered as corresponding if the header attributes "in party“, "out party“, "capacity agreement identification“ and "capacity contract type“ are identical.

All quantity values of these corresponding time series must be netted per position – this means that only one time series value (import or export) may have a quantity higher than 0MW per position.
