Formal title: Requirement on Half Hourly Data Collectors to Estimate Missing Reactive Power Demand Values

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


The estimation methods defined in section 4. 2. 1 of BSCP502 ‘Half Hourly Data Collection for SVA Metering Systems Registered in SMRS’ have a proven track record of mitigating the impact of missing Active Power data on settlement processes. CP1303 recommends extending these methods to include Reactive Power. This would reduce the impact of missing data on DUoS charging and network management functions, and hence bring benefits to Suppliers, LDSOs and customers.


CP1303 was raised on 03 July 2009. CP1303 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00666. This CP was approved by the SVG and it was implemented as part of the February 2010 BSC Systems Release.
