18th Webinar - kVAh Billing - the 4 things you must know to optimize energy bills

Webinar Date: 30-07-2020
Webinar Time: 03:30PM to 05:30PM

INTRODUCTION

After implementation of the kVAh tariff structure by MSEDCL in April 2020, several Companies in Maharashtra have experienced relatively higher billing amounts, as compared to the past. For many companies the calculation of kVAh based tariff structure and their internal calculations are in a mismatch. For companies which have already installed Harmonic filters, and yet experienced higher bills, the situation is puzzling. The situation in Maharashtra is no different from what the customers experienced in Tamil Nadu some months ago, when the implementation of kVAh billing was initiated. With a possibility that several states in the country would take up the kVAh billing in near future, this is an issue that needs to be addressed and be updated on priority.

This Webinar intends to drive the awareness on kVAh billing, and the importance of addressing the fundamental issues concerning the rise in billing. The Webinar will address 4 key issues which could be driving your energy bills higher due to poor Power Quality:

  • Reactive power & Reactive Energy compensation
  • Abrupt load changes and compensation
  • Unbalanced load compensation (fixed & dynamic)
  • Harmonics in the electrical network

The Webinar will also touch upon other possible and related issues that could be driving the bills higher such as calculation errors, logic of calculation of Reactive energy as per kVAh tariff structure and more…

It is important that the end users understand the importance of Power Quality and the need to improve it on an urgent basis to address the concerns in new kVAh based tariff implementation. This is also in view of the adaptation of National PQ regulations by various state regulatory commissions and distribution companies expected in near future – the most recent announcement in Punjab.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

This webinar brings regulatory and PQ domain experts along with end users to represent the renewed importance of PQ in context of kVAh tariff:

  • Addressing fundamental issues underlying concerns of increased energy bills after kVAh tariff implementation
  • Importance of PQ monitoring to reduce energy bills after kVAh tariff implementation
