Obligatory reactive power service (ORPS)

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.

 

From 11th March 2020, the Reactive reports will be published on our new National Grid ESO Data Portal.
