A GDX file is an input data file to be used with the vSPD model.
GDX files are created from selected SPD inputs extracted from an SPD case file. The naming convention for the GDX files published here is CaseType_YYYYMMDDHHMM_CaseID_RunDateTime.gdx where:
Real-time operation of the system is managed using the real-time dispatch (RTD) instance of SPD. Besides giving rise to the dispatch instructions issued to generators, RTD SPD cases also yield dispatch energy and reserve prices.
RTDP (RTD for pricing) case files may sometimes be published if scarcity pricing is in play. Likewise, PRSS (short price-responsive schedule) case files will be published if RTD cases are unavailable for any reason. When this occurs, dispatch prices for a trading period are derived from the most recent PRSS case pertaining to that period.
When a GDX file is used to provide the inputs to the vSPD model, the solution from the vSPD run will replicate that of SPD. SPD inputs and outputs are packaged up in the corresponding case file.

Datasets are collections of files that often contain large volumes of data and are available for immediate download. Dataset users are typically analysts familiar with the electricity industry and have a need to obtain a large set of data or specific data on a regular basis.
