Maritime Link - Loss Factor

NSPML has recalculated the Transmission Loss Factor as required by the Emera and Nalcor Transmission Service Agreements.

The calculated Loss Factor to be applied for Maritime Link transactions from November 15th to December 14th, inclusive, is 5.14% 


Change from last period:

To calculate the loss factor, the transfers in October as well as estimated station losses for valve cooling, transformer cooling and auxiliary systems are utilized. Transfers were more frequent than last period and at a generally higher power level for a longer duration. The revised loss factor of 5.14% is lower than that of the last period due to prolonged bipole operation at higher power magnitudes.

Last period, covering October 15th to November 14th, inclusive, had a loss factor of 5.21%.

The next update will be published on December 10th.
