Scoring according to the Scoring document, summarized as

For each scenario s, a prior point solution is constructed by keeping all variables fixed to their values in the prior operating point in the base case and the contingencies, projecting first the base case and then the contingencies to ensure feasibility of all hard constraints (details in the formulation document). Let MSpps denote the market surplus of the prior point solution for scenario s. This value is computed independently from the solutions provided by competitors.

For any entrant, the solution to scenario s is evaluated and a market surplus MStotals is assigned. If no solution is returned, or the solution is incorrectly formatted, or the solution is determined to be infeasible, or the evaluated market surplus is less than MSpps, then the assigned market surplus is MSpps.

The score MSgains, representing the gain in market surplus relative to the prior point, is computed as

MSgains = MStotals - MSpps

The score over a given set S of scenarios is

MSgain = ∑iS MSgains

Competitors were given a chance to review results before they were posted. See the Results Certification Period information.
