In the shipper read files, there is a provision for an override flag to be provided where the consumption fails the inner tolerance checks. When a read is replaced (and there is a previous and subsequent read present for the replaced read) or a read is inserted between 2 reads, the replaced/inserted read is validated against the previous and subsequent reads and energy tolerances are performed both ways for both periods.
There can be instances where only one of the 2 periods fail the inner tolerance and hence would need the override flag, while the other does not. In such cases, the read will always be rejected due to the consumption failing inner tolerance checks for one of the 2 periods.
The read validation logic needs to be amended such that if either of the 2 periods need an override flag and one has been provided, the read should be accepted.
There would also be changes to UNCVR (UNC Validation Rules) document to update the respective rules on inner tolerances for such instances.
This Change is in scope of November 2021 Major Release.
