+ For industrial sites are sensitive to power quality, RTE provides optional services to constantly monitor power quality, along with a commitment to mitigating voltage dips.
The Voltage Quality+ (Q+) service consists of:
monitoring disruptions to power with the help of a quality measuring tool (installed and managed by RTE);
providing you with factual information within 1 to 5 working days following the disruptions;
benefiting from a cross-referenced analysis of the disruptions, to identify their origins over the network and determine their consequences on your facility;
committing to a maximum annual number of voltage dips to a standard gauge (depth greater than 30% for more than 400 ms), with possible compensation if the engagement threshold is exceeded (this threshold is reviewed every 3 years and can improve depending on the evolution of the history of voltage dips);
providing you with an annual report on disruptions.
This cross-referenced analysis will enable a diagnosis, allowing for targeted improvement actions over the network and/or, for your part, the desensitisation of your facilities.
The Top Quality+ service (in French, Sup Quali+) (goes a step further in RTE’s commitment
It is aimed at clients that have attempted the desensitisation of their facility.
RTE proposes an improved commitment, with an additional template, taking into account more voltage dips than in the Q+ standard template: voltage dips whereby the depth exceeds 45% for 20 ms, or 30% for 200 ms, or 20% for 500 ms.
