What is the Difference between KVAh and KWh?

What is the Difference between KVAh and KWh?

Watt (W) is used to measure true power of a load, a reactive volt ampere (VAR) is used to measure the reactive power of a load (i.e. the rate at which energy is alternately stored and returned from a magnetic or electric field), and volt ampere is used to measure the apparent power of a load, where apparent power is the vector sum of the true power and the reactive power. The product of power and time is energy. So the volt hour is the measure of the rate of consumption of energy, the reactive volt ampere hour is a measure of the energy alternately stored in a field and returned to the supply and the volt ampere hour is the vector sum of these two categories of energy.

 

What is power factor?

What is power factor?

Power factor is the ratio between the KW (Kilo-Watts) and the KVA (Kilo-Volt Amperes) drawn by an electrical load.

What is the connected Load? What impact is going to have if I have a low power factor?

In a plant the ratings of all electrical equipments that are connected at the supply point regardless of their status of operation is called connected load. Now a days the billing is done on KVAh basis. A poor power factor results in consumption of more power and increase the number of units in KVAh which is directly impacted on increase of monthly consumption bill.

How the demand charges are collected?

How the demand charges are collected?

Demand charges are collected on monthly basis it is the rate of unit “KVA demand multiplied by maximum recorded demand” or 80% of CMD whichever is higher.

EX: For a1000 KVA CMD plant if the recorded maximum demand is 700KVA,the demand charges will be 80% of the CMD which is higher that is 800KVA*350Rs/per KVA(prevailing rate).

How is the billing done for a HT connection?

How is the billing done for a HT connection?

The power supplied at high tension is billed on two-part tariff i.e., based on Maximum demand   and Energy consumed. Maximum demand charges will be on 80% of CMD or actual recorded MD whichever is higher and actual energy charges on units consumed.

What is CMD? How much CMD should I apply for my firm?

What is CMD? How much CMD should I apply for my firm?

CMD is the Contracted Maximum demand. It is the recorded peak value of KVA continuously for 60sec in a billing month generally from 21st of the month to 21st of the next month. The CMD to be decided based on the load factor .The load factor is the ratio peak running load to the total installed capacity .In general load factor for bulk drug, engineering, process industries will be less than 0.5.

What is the procedure to apply for HT connection?

What is the procedure to apply for HT connection?

Step 1: Download HT application from the respective DISCOMs sites or collect from local customer care office.

Step 2: Duly fill the application form with all required data and make 5sets of copies and submit at the consumer service center (CSC) or Integrated service center (ISC) by enclosing 100/- DD towards the application fee with necessary documents.

Step 3: Required documents to be attached.

  1. The application will be processed by the AE-ADE-DE-SE, Upto 11kv or below  15 lakhs of estimation or below 3 lakhs of DCW (deposit contribution works).
  2. And 33kv or above 15 lakhs to 35 lakhs of estimation, or above  3 lakhs of DCW will be processed by CGM/OP.
  3.  And above 35 lakhs of estimation charges will be processed by CGM/COM.

Then sanction will be accorded along with the estimate by the SE office if the feasibility is there.

Step 4: Then apply for release of Work Order along with Estimation sanction copy, Payment receipt and Bills (duly attested by Gazetted Officer) to concern AE.

Then concern AE will give work order forwarded to ADE - DE.

Then DE will direct AO (expenditure), and JAO will close the Work Order material requisition number. Material to be drawn from store.

Step 5: Once the sanctioned copy is received development charges, security deposit and supervision charges has to be paid as mentioned and an HT agreement (2 original on 100/-  stamp paper and 3 copies of Xerox) has to be submitted as per the prescribed format.

Step 6: After completion of all the works, we have to submit Xerox copies of (1) estimation sanction copy (2)Payment receipt copy (3) Bills (4) HT agreement  (5)CEIG approval (if necessary) and (5)PCB concern (if necessary) to concerned ADE, Then he will give work completion letter and recommend for release of supply.

Step 7: Concerned DE/SE will issue release order. Metering and protection department will come and release the supply.
