Unit commitment and dispatch processes, including commitment optimization and real-time dispatch are covered, as well as demand in New England markets, including demand response programs and market impacts.

The course explains Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) and its impact on electricity prices, forecast and scheduling techniques, and market interactions among participants. It also covers accounting practices, including financial settlements and billing processes.
