Ibridge Develops Generation Dispatch Suite for ERCOT Nodal Market
Ibridge announced today that the company has been selected to develop a suite of applications to be used for the control and dispatch of power plants operating in the new Nodal Market System being developed by ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas). This application suite will interface with ERCOT, the energy company’s Trading desk, and the generating stations themselves via redundant, secured, web interfaces and dedicated communication lines.
The new Nodal market is expected to benefit the people of Texas by: delivering the capability to directly assign congestion costs, increase transparency of energy prices, enhance electric reliability and increase electricity market efficiency.
A major challenge of the project is the ability to “switch” from the existing Zonal market to the new Nodal Market in order to coordinate testing with ERCOT as they test and deploy the new market system.
