Formal title: Requirement on MOAs to Configure Meters to Record HH Reactive Power Data

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


Following a Working Group on Absent and Erroneous Reactive Power Data Elexon has raised CP1298. This is one of four CPs (1296, 1297, 1298 and 1299) which have resulted from the group’s work. Elexon has raised CP1298 which recommends the amendment of BSCP514. The change will place a specific obligation on MOAs – when they install or reconfigure Half Hourly Metering Equipment that is supplied via measurement transformers, they should configure the Metering Equipment to record Half Hourly demand values for both Reactive Import and Reactive Export (provided that the Metering Equipment has the capability to do so).


CP1298 was raised on 05 June 2009. CP1298 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00662. This CP was presented to the SVG on 04 August 2009 and implemented as part of the February 2010 Release.
