This application advocates efficient use of energy in Nigeria by providing tools for power installation analysis, calculation of savings on power factor correction, and connecting consumers to technical, supplies and installation support. Consumers who correct their installations power factor are expected to enjoy quality power supply with huge savings and Returns On Investment within 8 months. The Power Supply Authority will also have nothing to lose but everything to gain from relief on the national grid as more energy will be available to distribute.
The present billing structure in Nigeria which is on a flat KWH rate will only be considered fair if all consumers, especially industrial consumers (MD customers) are made to comply with a minimum power factor. The impact of installation power factor on power supply quality, generation and distribution infrastructure is too significant to be ignored when billing electricity consumers. A relief of more than 20% on the national grid is achievable if consumers comply with a minimum of 0.95 power factor. It is therefore important to assess consumers sites for compliance and penalize them based on demand KVA if found to fall sort. A certificate of compliance may also be issued to consumers with good power factor. In this way, consumers will be encouraged to install power factor correction capacitors to ensure compliance. When a high level of compliance is achieved nationally, a downwards review of tariffs across board would be justifiably necessary.
This application consists of six power and cost analysis modules for evaluation of different power factor scenarios justifying this call for minimum power factor compliance. It also consists of a communication module that enables users report faults instantly with location information and request for experts services on power factor correction. Distribution companies and NERC will also be able to send notifications and announcements to consumers.
This application will be handy for Electrical Engineering personnel and consultants in the industry.
Designed with intention to partner with Electricity Distribution Companies in Nigeria and Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.
