Consumption prices

Options available:

Based on wholesale market

This option is just available on Spain. If you choose this option you have to choose between the frequencies 30 min or hourly.

Based on tariff structure

You will have to fulfill the periods with each energy cost. Depending on the chosen tariff you will have to fulfill more or less periods.

Contracted load prices definition

Options available:

By periods

By choosing this option you will have to fulfill contracted load of the different periods of the chosen tariff.

Unique period [kW]

Choose this option if the power cost is applied to active power measured in kW units. And it's calculated just for one unique period.

Unique period [kVA]

Choose this option if the power cost is applied to apparent power measured in kVA units. And it's calculated just for one unique period.

By periods with reduction coefficient

Fulfill the following fields with this information

  • Contracted load: Cost that will be applied to the apparent power.
  • Reduction cost: reduction cost applied to the total cost calculated on the apparent power.

Excess power

If your tariff has penalties for excess power choose the option that this penalty should be applied. 

Options available:

 

85-105% Rule

Options available:

 

Based on percentage table reactive power / active

Reactive power penalty based on defined blocks with the percentage of reactive energy versus active energy as boundaries. Blocks are configurable and a price must be associated to each of them.

Based on phi cosinus 

Reactive power penalty based on the Phi (Φ) cosinus or Power Factor calculated from active and reactive energy consumed in each tariff period (P1.. Pn) during the billing period. Slots are fully configurable and a price must be associated to each of them.

Based on CFE formulas - Mexico

Penalty / Bonus reactive power based on the formulas defined 
by CFE (Federal Electricity Commission) of Mexico.

Reactive power penalty based on the Phi (Φ) cosinus or Power Factor calculated from active and reactive energy consumed in each tariff period (P1.. Pn) during the billing period and based on the CNFL formulas.

 

Inductive based on percentages table + capacitive - portugal

Reactive Inductive energy penalty based on defined blocks with the percentage of reactive energy versus active energy as boundaries, in periods (P1, P2) per day, and aggregated in the billing period. Blocks are configurable and a price must be associated to each of them. Reactive Capacitive energy penalty based in periods (P3, P4) during the billing period. Price is configurable.

 

Other costs and taxes

In order to adapt as much as we can to your tariffs you can add the additional costs in this part. 

Options available:

Consumption

This concepts are applied to the total consumption. The options available are: 

  • Variable energy charge (Um/kWh): Applied to each kWh. 
  • Variable discount %: Applied to the total consumption. 

Contracted load

This concepts are applied to the total contracted load. This are the concepts available. 
  • Fixed discount (%): Appliet to the total contracted power. 
  • Variable power charge (UM/kW): Applied to the contracted power. 
  • Variable power charge (UM/kVA): Applied to the contracted power. 
  • Variable power charge per day (UM/kVA/day): Applied to the contracted power per day.    

Global

  • TAX (%): Taxes applied to the total price.
  • Fixed energy charge (UM/day): Fixed charges applied every period. 
  • Total discount before TAX (%): Add the value of discount to be applied before TAXES.
  • VAT (%):  This specific TAX is to contemplate the valued add tax. You can define the value that is applied in your country.
