IMM Software to Estimate Benefits of Real-Time Co-optimization

The ERCOT Independent Market Monitor (IMM) has developed software that allows Market Participants to assess the benefits of the potential implementation of Real-Time Co-optimization (RTC) in the ERCOT wholesale electricity market. The Public Utility Commission of Texas is studying the impacts of RTC in the ERCOT market, which is associated with PUC project number 47199.

The software includes a series of data files from 2017 that can be used to run a simulation showing how Real-Time Co-optimization would have impacted market outcomes in 2017. The download includes a how-to file, software, input files and detailed results files. A supplemental file (2017securedata) must be accessed through the ERCOT MIS Reports and Extracts tab.
