Obligatory Reactive Power Service (ORPS)

Obligatory Reactive Power Service (ORPS)

Ancillary Services

The obligatory reactive power service (ORPS) is the provision of varying reactive power output. At any given output generators may be requested to produce or absorb reactive power to help manage system voltages close to its point of connection. All generators covered by the requirements of the Grid Code are required to have the capability to provide reactive power. Provided here is data on utilisation (in MVARh) of this service per balancing mechanism unit and per month.
