Over the years, the number of coupled countries and consequently the number of parties and systems involved in the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC) has increased enormously. As a result, the market coupling process and especially, the calculation process, has become more complex. To secure that there is sufficient time for running the daily market coupling process, the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) have approved the...
