2 Seite 2 von 12 1 Introduction This Manual will show you how to use the ABN-Tool. It will explain how you can import your Master Data, how to acquire your tacking out of service data and how to create and send the APS-File to Swissgrid. The Tool is based on a year, which means you have to make a new Folder for each year and copy a blank version of the Tool in it. Once you ve started the Tool, your only possibility to change data is with the Graphical User Interface (GUI). Don t change any data directly in the cells of the monthly sheets, it will cause problems! The following chapters will show you the different steps how to acquire your tacking out of service data. 2 First Steps First of all you have to download the ABN-Tool via the direct link: https://www.swissgrid.ch/swissgrid/en/home/experts/topics/ancillary_services/availability_planning.html Or go to under Experts -> Search Topics -> Ancillary Services -> Availability Planning. «Experts -> Search Topics -> Ancillary Services» «Availability Planning» Click on the zip-file and save it anywhere on your computer Then you have to extract the Zip-Folder to your computer, create a new folder named with the year you want to plan and copy the extracted folder abn into your new created folder (for example 2012).
3 Seite 3 von 12 Extract the downloaded file Copy the extracted file abn into your new created folder 2012 Create a new folder and rename it with the year you want to plan. Now you should have a file-structure as it looks in the following picture. There you can copy your file stammdaten.csv into the folder stammdaten. If you don t have this file, please contact us. You should have this path and these files Copy your file stammdaten.csv into the folder stammdaten, all of your Master Data is in this file Then open this file, the one you copied in the folder stammdaten and check all your Master Data. If there are any mistakes, please contact us before doing any further steps! Once you have done that you can start the ABN-Tool by double-clicking on abn 2_0.xls and activate the macros. Every time you want to plan another year, you have to make a new folder and save the original version from the Webpage in it.
4 Seite 4 von 12 3 Overview GUI This Chapter will give you an overview of the Graphical User Interface. After starting the tool, it should look like the following pictures: The GUI has three different parts. The first one, called Availability, is to acquire your Availability Data as it is described in chapter 9. The second part, called Setup, is for the import of the Master Data (chapter 5), the Initialization (chapter 6), the Single Data Import (chapter 7) and the Backup Import (chapter 8). In the last part, called Help, you will find this Manual. 4 Structure The ABN-Tool has five different sheets, which will be explained in this chapter. In the sheet Master Data you will find the data you have to import in chapter 5. The sheets Backup and Year are not important for you, don t delete them! The sheet Setup contains different information and here are also the -Addresses where your APS will be sent. So please change the -Address in Case B19 to your own Address, so you will also receive the APS-File. In sheet Setup : Replace the -Address in B19 by your own Address In the sheet Frontend you can find a button to activate and deactivate the GUI. Do not erase any of these five sheets; otherwise the tool will not work.
5 Seite 5 von 12 5 Import Master Data The first thing what you have to do, once you started the ABN-Tool, you have to import the Master Data, that s the Excel-File called stammdaten.csv. If you don t have this file, please contact us. This file has to be in the subfolder stammdaten, as it is described in chapter 2. Then select Setup, push the button Import Master Data and choose the appropriate Excel-File. Click on import master data chose the.csv-file and open it Now you have every generator and every pump that you re responsible for in your ABN-Tool. Before doing any further steps, please check all this data in the sheet Master Data and inform us if there are any mistakes. If everything is correct, you can go on to chapter 6. Check all your Master Data if everything is correct
6 Seite 6 von 12 6 Initialization Now you have to fill in your ABN-File with initial values. Select the index Initialization, choose the desired year and push the button Start with Initialization. This function will make you one sheet per month for the complete year and it will fill them with the maximum power of every machine, which means state Available. After this action, your sheet looks like the following picture: Once you did the Initialization, the year cannot be changed Maximum Power = Available Generator/Pump with EIC-Code Date and time One sheet for every month
7 Seite 7 von 12 7 Create backup file Once you did the import master data and the initialization of the year, you can create a backup file at any time. The tool will save then all the availability planning that you already made in a separate file. 8 Import backup file This function is only available once you have created an APS-File and send it to Swissgrid or if you created a backup file as it is described in chapter 7. At the moment you push the Button Create & Send APS or the Button create backup file the program will make a backup file and store it on your computer. So if you made any mistakes with your ABN-Tool or if you erase some sheets or something, you can import this backup file. To do that, download a new version of the ABN-Tool from our webpage, store it somewhere on your computer and extract it. Now take only the abn 2_0.xls File and copy it in your abn-folder where you want to import the backup file. Substitute the old file and open it with activated macros. Then go to Setup and push the button import backup file. The program will now load your backup file with the last APS-Data you sent to Swissgrid. After downloading a new version from the webpage, substitute only the abn 2_0.xls - File with the new version Start the new blank file and push the button import backup file, the tool will restore all the necessary data
8 Seite 8 von 12 9 Availability Please select now the index Availability to acquire your taking out of service data. First you have to select the power plant and then you can see all the generators and pumps of this power plant. Now you can either chose the whole power plant or just one or more machines. Select the desired power plant first Then choose either the whole power plant or just one or more generators Then you insert the time range when your generator is not available. Here you have to be careful because the. with the date and the : with the time will be inserted automatically, also the year will be given. After typing 10 the dot comes automatically It s the same with the year and the :
9 Seite 9 von 12 The next step is that you can chose either the 0 MW, that means these machines are not available for the selected time or max. Power, which means that the selected machines are available. After the import of your Master Data every machine is available (max. Power) for the whole year! That means you just have to acquire when your machine is NOT available, all the rest you can leave as it is. Only if you switched already a machine to not available and now you will set it back to available, you have to use the max. Power -Button. Choose 0 MW to indicate not available or choose max. Power to indicate available (only necessary if the machine was set on 0 MW before!) Finally, and this is a new feature, you have to enter the reason for each time when a machine is not available, otherwise you will see an error message and you cannot start the availability as soon as you enter a reason. This reason will be sent to Swissgrid with a separate , once you clicked on the button Create&Send APS. Enter a reason for unavailability or you get an error message!
10 Seite 10 von 12 Now you can click on Start Availability and the program will make these changes. Everywhere you make some changes; the cells will be marked with a color (green). Push the button Start Availability Any changes are marked as green cells Don t push this button after every acquisition, only when you finished the whole year for every machine The reason for unavailability will be written in these cells Now you can do this for all of your machines for the whole year in the same way. 10 Create & Send APS When you finished the acquisition of your data, you can push the button Create & Send APS. This will convert your Excel-Sheet into an APS-File (ERRP) and send it automatically to Swissgrid. Once you finished acquiring your ABN-Data, you can push this button and the program will send the APS automatically to Swissgrid and to the you wrote in Cell B19 in chapter 4 Microsoft will ask you twice if you want to send these s and you have to accept
11 Seite 11 von Update the Master Data If you want to make any changes in you Master Data, you have to contact Swissgrid. Please send an with the desired changes to and then you will receive a new file called stammdaten_aktualisiert. If you open that file, it looks a bit different to the old one. As you can see there are two more rows which indicate after what date the changes takes effect. This is because you can only make changes of Master Data in the future, never in the past. But these two rows are just needed if you want to make changes during a year. Date and time when the changes take effect There are two ways to change your Master Data. If you begin to plan a new year you can just copy the file with your new Master Data in the corresponding folder stammdaten, start your ABN-Tool an import your master data as usual. Then you do the initialization of the year and acquire your unavailabilities. The second way is if you want to change the Master Data during a year you have already planned. If that is the case, you copy the file with your new Master Data in the same folder where you your old one is. Then you start your ABN-Tool, click on import master data, choose the new file stammdaten_aktualisiert and open it. Choose the new file and press open Push on import master data If you try to make changes in the past, the program will show you this message to inform you that he took the earliest date as possible for these changes Now all the changes in your Master Data has been made and you can continue your availability planning or send the new APS to Swissgrid. The only changes in Master Data that we can make is to add a new generator/pump or to change the power of a machine.
