Year Ahead Constraint Limits

The data file contains MW constraint limits for main boundaries on the transmission system. The limits were created in March 2021 and cover the financial year April 2021 to March 2022. The forecasts for B6 - SCOTEX and B7 SHARN3 limits have been updated for a fault on the network between 21/06/21 and 26/07/21.
