Meter Time Switch Code (MTC) The MTC indicates how many registers (set of meter reads or dials) your electricity meter has and what times they’ll operate during the day. For Example, the MTC will show if your meter has two registers, one which records day consumption, the other night consumption.
Line Loss Factor (LLF) LLF’S are multipliers which are used to scale energy consumed or generated to account for losses on the UK's Distribution Networks. LLFs are applied in both Central Volume Allocation (CVA) LLF and Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) LLF.
