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 May 15th to June 14th, inclusive, is 4.58%.


Change from last period

To calculate the loss factor, the transfers in April as well as estimated station losses for valve cooling, transformer cooling and auxiliary systems are utilized. There was a slight increase in the loss factor due to less frequent transactions at lower power levels and for shorter durations. The loss factor for this period is 4.58%.

Last period, covering April 15th, 2020 to May 14th, 2020, inclusive, had a loss factor of 4.55%.

The next update will be published on June 10th, 2020.
