The designated procedure must be transparent and |! | non-discriminatory. This procedure should be |! | develop as stage, timelines and mechanisms |! | delivery of information that will establish the rules of procedure.
Article 71-46 - Operation systems |! | Electric resulting interconnected should be |! | coordinated in order to preserve the safety of the |! | service and guarantee the most economical operation for the |! | a set of facilities.
Furthermore, the interconnection system is governed by |! | the General rules on safety and quality of |! | Service established by the present law and their |! | regulations.
Article 71-47 - Transfers of energy than |! | result from the coordination of the operation of the |! | interconnected systems will be valued according to |! | instantaneous marginal cost of each system |! | Electric, which will be calculated by the body |! | coordination of the operation or CDEC that corresponds.
The transfer of power will be determined |! | in accordance with provisions in article 71-50 this |! | law.
The resulting tariff revenue of the |! | differences arising from the application of the |! | Instant marginal costs and prices for the knot of the |! | power to govern at the respective ends of the |! | interconnection system, will be perceived by those who |! | constitute rights of use on that system, and a |! | the same pro-rata.
For the purposes of the provision of services |! | complementary, should attend the respective |! | transfers who have rights of use on the |! | interconnection, in proportion to the same system.
Article 71-48-Only companies which have |! | constituted rights of use concerning the |! | Article 71-45 may agree contracts for |! | supplies firm of energy and power, or no |! | fixing of prices, located in any of the |! | systems that are interconnected.
The amount of supply power that a firm |! | company wants to commit such contracts |! | It will be limited to their respective rights of use.
Companies that have established rights of use |! | You can offer and transfer to the possible interested |! | those rights of use that have not committed. |!| Payments and involved in these periods |! | transfers are governed by agreements between the parties.
Article 71-49.-Those who have rights to use |! | on the interconnection system must pay the |! | corresponding tolls for injection or removal in the |! | each trunked system installations of the |! | systems that are interconnected, determined in accordance with |! | the general procedures established in the |! | articles 71-30 71-32 of this Act.
Article 71-50-The magnitudes of power by |! | be considered in the transfers referred to in the |! | Article 71-47 will be established for each system |! | electric grid, regardless of the sense |! | instantaneous power flows.
Each year shall determine the condition of |! | exporter / importer of every electrical system. For |! | purpose, shall be considered as export system to the |! | system that possess the largest quotient between their capacity |! | own generation and own demand in hours of |! | maximum use. The system that present the quotient |! | minor shall be deemed importer. For determining |! | respective own generation capacity is |! | consider the capacity of each generating unit, |! | discounted the effects of own consumption, |! | unavailability or hydrological variability, according to |! | appropriate.
The transfer of power through the system |! | interconnection is determined equal to the lowest value |! | the capacity of the interconnection system between and |! | transfer of power that equals the cuocientes |! | between their own capability and demand characteristic in hours of |! | maximum utilization for each system.
Means that those who have rights to use |! | on the interconnection system carried out injections |! | power in the importing system, which will be |! | same to the transfer of power resulting from the |! | previous section, in proportion to the use rights.
These powers injected, increased by |! | power losses, correspond to the withdrawals of |! | power from the export system.
The fit between supply and demand of power in |! | each system will be held including injections or |! | withdrawals of power referred to in this article. ". |! |"
