What is a Reactive Energy Tariff?
Article 16 of the Electricity Market Customer Service Regulation Article 5;
"The necessary measuring system to measure the amount of reactive energy; reactive energy tariff will not be applied according to the relevant legislation is established by customers outside of subscribers. From these customers,
Those with installed power below 50 kVA exceed thirty-three percent of the amount of active energy they are attracted to; consume inductive reactive energy or consume capacitive reactive energy in excess of twenty percent of the active energy amount;
The installed power is 50 kVA and above; if they consume inductive reactive energy in excess of twenty percent of the amount of active energy they consume, or if they give capacitive reactive energy to the system in excess of fifteen percent of the active energy amount, reactive energy is obliged to pay the consumption price.
Although inductive and capacitive energy consumption exceeds both of these limits or has an obligation to establish a reactive energy measurement mechanism; the procedures and principles for the reactive energy price that customers who do not establish or install in accordance with the provisions of the legislation shall be in the tariff proposals submitted to the Institution within the framework of the Electricity Market Tariffs Regulation and related communiqués."
Accordingly, users of this power and group can use compensation facilities; proper facilities are first and forely necessary for their own financial interests, but it is important to remember that;
As important as it is to build compensation facilities appropriately, it is necessary not to exceed the rates on tariffs by constantly monitoring consumption rates.
Deformation of the contactor, which works continuously in the compensation system; In capaductors, they may lose their properties over time due to the number of charges and discharges, or it will not be possible to meet the Active, Inductive and Capacitive ratios if they are deformed due to the times between commissioning and exit and therefore unable to perform their duties.
In order to do this, it is important to calculate the strength of the plant in the design and construction of the compensation plant, how many groups will be organized, and what forces the groups will start from. In addition, relay settings need to be done correctly.
Importance of Compensation System
Proper configuration of the compensation system does not mean that it will not be a problem again. Throws one of the fuses in a fault or compensation system that will occur in contactors or codanators. (In this case, there will be no power outage of the plant!)
only the contactors will be disabled) within one day; By exceeding inductive or capacitive rates, you will have to pay a high reactive price on your invoice that month.
This is an undesirable expense for every business as well as in government agencies; it is important to pay attention as this price is directly paid to the directors of the institution.
This will be possible by remote control and control or by daily monitoring of meter consumption through companies or persons who follow professional and regulatory regulations closely in their work.
