CP1578 ‘Enabling Embedded LDSOs to submit Site Specific LLFs’
Formal title: Amendments to BSCP128 to enable Embedded LDSOs to calculate and submit Site Specific LLFs as required
This CP proposes updates to remove issues that may stop Embedded LDSOs from submitting Site Specific LLFs. These updates will define the process for submitting Site Specific LLFs, including establishing deadlines and requirements for the Embedded and Host LDSOs.
Line Loss Factors, which are used to account for losses on the Distribution Networks, are calculated and submitted to the BSC Company (BSCCo) by Licensed Distribution System Operators (LDSOs). Embedded LDSOs usually Mirror the Line Loss Factors (LLFs) of the Host LDSO, however, in certain circumstances they are required to calculate Site Specific LLFs. Several issues have been identified with the current process for calculating Site Specific LLFs that could prevent Embedded LDSOs from successfully completing their submissions.
