Particular situations of gas transmission unavailability – Example 1.
How should the event be properly presented by using the available daily capacity units (kWh/d)?
How to calculate and correctly publish the amount of available and unavailable capacity?
The Agency’s guidance and the format for the XMLs for “Unavailabilities for gas facilities” allow the usage of kWh/day or mcm/day as the only acceptable units for events related to gas transmission system unavailabilities.
Example: Publication of UMM in case of unavailability of gas transmission for an event that lasts several hours during a single gas day.
- Event start: 2015-11-06 08:00
- Event stop: 2015-11-06 14:00
- Technical capacity in normal circumstances: 1000 kWh/h
- The event lasts 6 hours during a single gas day and the value of the affected capacity is constant during the whole event
Description of the event and the capacity unavailability:
|Gas hour:||Available kWh/h||Unavailable kWh/h|
Answer: The new schema “REMITUMMGasSchema_V1.xsd” (available here) contains also “kWh/h” as an allowed unit and the schema can be already used for gas inside information reporting.
The previous schema REMITUMMGasSchema_V1_OLD.xsd without the “kWh/h” unit is still supported by ARIS and can be used for gas inside information reporting. If the old schema is used the below conversion from kWh/d to kWh/h applies. In the future (expected time: 2019/2020) the Agency will discontinue using the OLD version of the schema. Provided example represents one event and is reportable with following elements:
Event start: 2015-11-06 08:00 - Event stop: 2015-11-06 14:00
- the unavailable capacity is 950 kWh/h = 950*24 = 22800 kWh/d
- the available capacity is 50 kWh/h = 50*24 = 1200 kWh/d
Technical capacity is 1000 kWh/h= 1000*24= 24000 kWh/d.
