In fact, leakage and loss in electricity distribution mean two different notions. Technical losses can be measured and reseded by business management.
What we want to talk about here is studies on reducing the use of illegal electricity.
The definition of illegal electricity use is described as below in Article 13 of the EPDK's Customer Service Regulation.
Leakage electric power consumption
ARTICLE 13 — (1) Real or legal persons;
a) By interfering with the distribution system or counters or measuring system or installation, by preventing accurate detection of consumption, incomplete or incorrect measurement, or consuming electrical energy in violation of the legislation without being measured or passed through the legally established meter,
b) It is considered to be illegal electricity energy consumption when the legal entity with the distribution license to cut the electricity cut in accordance with the relevant legislation, without fulfilling its obligations, without the permission of the legal entity that owns the distribution license.
Missing Fugitive Targets
Committing to reduce runaway loss rates by specifying a target without clearly examining the current situation in an Electricity distribution zone ultimately causes frustration.
In order to set targets to reduce leakage rates, you need to know about subscriber and subscriber connection structures in the distribution zone.
At the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to the measured or aggregator counter measured and dialing ratios of energy exchange points from the bar. Otherwise, the amount of energy purchase with incorrect information is measured incorrectly, which may appear to be a loss for the distribution company. At the very least, it will incorrectly reflect the performance of the company.
For example, if we take two different types of customer portfolio and have the same consumption amounts;
|Energy Received||Energy Sold||Difference||Appears||Zero loss||3.5% trf.kay||Real|
|Kwh||Kwh||Kwh||K/K %||sales kwh||sat.top.||K/K %|
As shown in the example table above, the K/K ratio, which takes the same amount of energy but appears in two different regions with differences in the method of measurement in sales, varies a lot when customer consumption is measured from the bar or when the actual K/K ratios are taken into account when sales where invoices are added to the loss of 3.5% transformer by regulation. Perhaps distribution companies are evaluating themselves at a total K/K ratio, which is already the method in the regulations and to be reported to the EPDK. However, if we look at the actual K/K ratios in the 1st province, there is a loss of 16%.
The Benefit of Fighting the Lost Fugitive
The benefit of lowering the lost fugitive is seen here, the lower the rate of loss, the more revenue-raising activity it will be for the company.
The sample table is given only to show the strikingness of the values, where the actual K/K ratios will vary considerly when the measurement criteria change.
It is best to take measures to prevent the use of illegal electricity, although the use of illegal electricity will never go down to zero. Despite the measures, the struggle for illegal electricity use will continue.
In order to prevent leakage electricity use, it is imperative that each customer's measurement system is sealed, sealing the meter klemens cover alone may not yield results, especially if there are sections on the electrical panels suitable for leakage connection, the customer is asked to make these sections in accordance with the internal installation regulations and the electrical panels are sealed in accordance with the regulations.
If there is a noticeable glitch during the reading and opening/cutting periods to prevent leaks made over the counters without opening the klemens cover on the counters, they are reported directly to the company authorities and photographed if necessary.
Especially in temporary admission and installation inspection processes, a specialist from customer service is provided with a commission and supervision is provided.
Leakage Electrical Detection
Detection of leakage electricity use in general;
- Notification of employees of company personnel (or subcontractors),
- Notification from third parties by means of communication such as telephone, e-mail,
- During the inspections, the company's
- As a result of the analysis carried out in the company database,
Checklists can be created.
As important as detecting and recording the use of illegal electricity
It's a follow-up. Anyone who has received illegal use notices must register them all and be informed about the consequences of notification holders (if they have provided contact information).
Follow-up of the results of these incoming notices, leaked detection minutes to be kept in the detection of customers using illegal electricity, where and in which unit the documents are lost or jumped in between, whether the minutes and power determination were done according to the procedure, and the results of the minutes should be followed up to the end.
It is possible to easily follow up on a form design on a day and time with a form design, and as a result of this follow-up, it is possible to make both revenue-enhancing work by finalized documents worn or overlooked by an employee both between units and within the unit, and to turn time, time frictions and disputes between units into opportunities.
Knowing that each unit and each employee's work is supervised separately creates a competitive environment among employees. In to be successful, no employee or unit can stave off their work, and motivation automatically increased because it became clear what job he had been staying with him for at what stage and for how long.
It is inthinkable that this challenge alone is sufficient, there can always be erroneous measurements other than customer defects, and these erroneous measurements often mean a high percentage of consumption loss. In order to avoid this situation, it is necessary to control the measurement circuits and etalon the counters, especially in customers with current traffic. When viewed, it is likely that there are malfunctions in a measurement system where everything seems normal.
In order to be successful in these applications, it is first to create a team that is very well trained in measurement systems, control the use of enforcement devices in existing facilities and new facilities, to provide expert employees in counter adjustment desk and etalon, or to update their information through training.
All these operations should be reported in the appropriate format and followed according to a plan.
