The calculated Loss Factor to be applied for Maritime Link transactions from January 15th to February 14th, inclusive, is 4.94% 


Change from last period

To calculate the loss factor, the transfers in December as well as estimated station losses for valve cooling, transformer cooling and auxiliary systems are utilized. Transfers were less frequent than last period though still at a relatively high power level for shorter durations. The loss factor of 4.94% remains unchanged from last period.

Last period, covering December 15th, 2019 to January 14th, 2020, inclusive, had a loss factor of 4.95%.
