  • Details

Electric utilities use different schemes and service rate schedules when pricing electricity. The service rate schedules can be based on a combination of electrical energy use, electrical demand, power factor, time-of-use, acceptance of power interruptions, and on-site power generating capabilities. Designed for individuals who deal with electric energy costs, in this course, you will learn about the most common pricing schemes used by utilities, and how charges are calculated in these schemes. The course also describes a typical electricity bill and demonstrates through examples how—given the utility rate schedule and the projected energy use pattern—the projected electric energy costs may be calculated. After completing this course, you will able to:  Explain: Why electric utilities use different service rate schedules;  How to reduce electric demand;  The driving mechanism behind on-site power generation credits; The pros and cons of electric utility rebate programs. Describe the: Different types of electric energy use charge rates; Different types of electric demand charge rates; Different types of electric power penalty charges. Apply the: Different electric energy use charge rates to calculate electric energy use costs; Different electric demand charge rates to calculate electric demand costs. Read an electric meter to determine kWh use and peak demand. Calculate average power factor from meter readings. Find the Service type, Billing dates, Breakdown of charges, and Total monthly charges on any electric utility bill. Evaluate and justify the costs that are found on a utility bill. It can be subscribed to independently, as a part of the Electrical System Design Course Package (I-P), or Electrical Systems and Controls eLibrary. (I-P). 1.25 PDH
