Reactive energy compensation

Reactive energy compensation

[imagen.TextoAlternativoVacio]

Electric appliances consume reactive energy (measured in kVArh), which doesn't produce useful work but which it essential for the correct functioning of appliances. Appliances that are not included in the systems for Reactive Energy Compensation, or those in which it is either poor functioning or obsolete, they cause the deterioration of productive equipment and excessive and unnecessary charges on the electric bill. These charges can be avoided by installing capacitor banks, either fixed or automatic, which are drawn up based on the characteristics of each appliance.

Endesa will carry out a personalized study of your installation and will suggest a scaled solution to reduce reactive power charges that, with effect from January 2011, came into force in the offices: 7253/2010 and 12605/2010, and which would be even more heavily penalised for each type of installation that did have reactive power compensation system. The changes shall apply to the inductive reactive energy measured at times that were not peak and may result in an increase in the electric bill.

The new regulations for billing shall apply to the inductive reactive energy measured at times that were not peak and shall be referred to, on the bill, as “Off-peak reactive energy”. The changes introduce multiplicative factors which will be applied to the reactive energy used for different tg φ role-brackets, which are defined by the ratio between the reactive energy and active energy .

The multiplicative factors are progressively applied:

  • As from January 2011 – multiplicative factors will apply to reactive energy included in the brackets 2 and 3
  • As from January 2012 – multiplicative factors will apply to reactive energy included in the brackets 1, 2 and 3

As from January 2012, the integration period for determining the reactive energy quantities went from being daily for devices supplied with Very High Voltage (VHV), High Voltage (HV) and Medium Voltage (MV).
