CP1528 ‘CoP4 clarification of BSC Party responsibility for Commissioning of measurement transformers that the BSC Party adopts’
Formal title: ‘CoP4 clarification of BSC Party responsibility for Commissioning of measurement transformers that the BSC Party adopts’
Where Metering Equipment has been installed by a non-BSC Party, the BSC places obligations on the Registrant to ensure that its MOA performs the required Commissioning of all Metering Equipment in accordance with CoP4, which includes Commissioning and testing of measurement transformers (current transformers (CTs) and voltage transformers (VTs)).
The current drafting of CoP4 states that Commissioning of measurement transformers owned by a BSC Party will be that BSC Party’s responsibility. However, there is no guidance regarding situations where measurement transformers installed by a non-BSC Party are later adopted by a BSC Party. This lack of guidance contributes to a perceived misunderstanding of the responsibilities under the BSC related to Commissioning where a BSC Party has agreed to adopt equipment.
CP1528 seeks to amend CoP4 to clarify that a BSC Party will be responsible for the Commissioning of any measurement transformers that the BSC Party has agreed to adopt.
