Formal title: Resolution of Inconsistency Between the BMRA and NGC Interface

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision


The BMRA Software displays incorrect Peak Settlement Period numbers on the Forecast 2-14 Day Ahead Screen. This screen displays the peak values for both the Demand and Margin for each Settlement Day and associated Settlement Period, 2 – 14 Days ahead. The NGC Interface provides the associated date and time in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH: MM but the criterion associated to this format is for the ‘Day of Forecast’ only. NGC do not provide the time of the peak Settlement Period to the BMRA which results in the value for HH: MM always being 00: 00.
The BMRA interprets the data provided as Settlement Period 1 GMT or Settlement Period 3 BST for the Settlement Day. The implication of this is that the peaks for Demand and Margin always show as Settlement Period 1 or Settlement Period 3 rather than the correct peak Settlement Period in question.
