The wholesale market is settled on ex-post final prices. Final prices are determined each morning for all trading periods (midnight to midnight) of the preceding day. The prices will remain interim until the pricing manager declares them to be final, usually but not always on the second business day following they day to which the prices pertain. Part 13 of the Code describes in detail how pricing in the wholesale market is undertaken.
A number of datasets related to final pricing can be found here. In most instances, the dataset is derived from the final pricing SPD case file, i.e. as is the case with all wholesale electricity markets, prices are determined using an optimization model.
