If you hover the Channels menu item, you'll get the other channel related functions.
Tariffs are costs/earnings depending on weekdays and/or day times.
If you assign a tariff to a channel, it will overwrite the cost attribute.
If you don't need tariff, e.g. for constant compensations for electricity fed into the grid, you should use the cost attribute!
A tariff is defined by time slices from a start date and is endless valid.
If a cost changes e.g. for next year, create a new time slice with the new starting date.
You will see all your tariffs and the starting dates:
- Possible functions on a tariff header line
- Show overview of tariff
- Create new time slice
- Edit master data
- Clone tariff, this will also clone the time slices
- Delete tariff, this will also remove any reference in channels
- Possible functions on a time slice line
- Edit time slice
- Clone time slice
- Delete time slice
A tariff is described by a unique name and an optional description.
A time slice for a tariff is defined by
- Starting date
- Fix cost per day, e.g. a basic fee for imports (optional)
- Time depended data
- Starting time
Simple example is a fix import rate, only changes each year, so the cost is the same for each weekday and any time.
Because you have to pay it, it's negative.
Here we have a tariff with peak and off-peak tariff times.
You are free to maintain this in 2 ways, the result will be the same.
