Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) adjusts the calculation of the Real-Time Settlement Point Price for a Resource Node. The adjustment is to remove the Base Point weighting of the Real-Time Locational Marginal Prices (LMPs).
Reason: The current method of calculating payments and charges of Point-to-Point (PTP) Obligations and PTP Options settled in Real-Time based on Base Point weighted Real-Time Settlement Point Prices can lead to payments and charges when there is no congestion, which are not supported by congestion rent and can lead to Real-Time Revenue Neutrality Allocation uplift. With the implementation of this NPRR, payments and charges for PTP Obligations and PTP Options settled in Real-Time will be more accurate and should only occur when there is Real-Time congestion.
