  • ESB Networks SAP-ISU outage on 18th November 2007

          Retail Market Design Service Update

  ESB Networks SAP-ISU outage on Sunday 18th November 2007


            •    ESB Networks SAP-ISU and ESB Customer Supply SAP-ISU are
                 separate applications with separate data stores running on
                 separate processors but located within a single cabinet and
                 sharing the power supply and other services
            •    Unusually, this outage involved the common power supply
                 (memory upgrade to ESBCS SAP)
            •    A gap in the outage agreement procedure meant that ESBN did
                 not agree to the outage prior to its announcement.
            •    ESBN has taken this incident up with its IT service provider and
                 clarified the market impact
            •    A formal procedure has now been implemented to secure prior
                 agreement by the ESBN designated SLA holder to all future
                 planned outages

                        Discussion Request

  DR 0117 - Proposal to add Acceptance,
   Completion and Cancellation messages to
   Meter Works design

  • Feedback from one participant raised issues about the
    process for cancellation of Meter Works/De-
    energisations/Re-energisations
  • Further internal ESB Networks discussions ongoing
  • Valid ‘cancellation’ codes will be added to 131 message
    when the DR is re-circulated (Action Item 70)

                Market Change Request
MCR 0154 – Versioning of the 341
Propose to rename the MCR from
    ‘Versioning of the 341’ to
    ‘Versioning of the Meter Data on the 341 Market Message’

Question raised – How will the MCR handle version numbers for import and
  export data
• Proposed Solutions for MCR 154
    – Solution 1 Provide a separate Version Number at the MPRN level for Import
      and Export data and a read replacement flag at the Channel Level Details which
      would indicate the channel being updated.
    – Solution 2 Provide a Version Number at the channel level. This would mean
      that the Import QH kW, Import QH kVAr, Export QH kW and the QH Export
      kVAr would each have a version number. The Read Replacement Flag would
      no longer be required as the version would indicate the reading being replaced.
Longer term raise a new DR to build a new message 342 for Export data only
   and use 341 for import data only.
