WATTGURUQCA provides a range of functionalities required by various regulations and eligible parties to operate as a Qualified Coordinating Agency (QCA) for a pooling substation.
Forum of Regulators’ (FoRs) Model Forecasting and Scheduling (F&S) Regulations stipulate the idea of having pooling substation as the basic building block of F&S and deviation settlement mechanism.
A typical pooling substation will have multiple wind and solar generators connected to it. These renewable generators have different owners with varied off take arrangements. Hence, an institutional structure in the form of ‘QCA’ requires positioning to coordinate F&S and commercial settlement of deviations with renewable (Wind/Solar) generators and the State Load Despatch Centres (SLDCs).
