Cost Field Processor

Cost field processor is designed for calculation meter cost values based on the consumption data and corresponding tariff. Connection between meter and tariff is defined in Meters Tariffs data source for a certain period.

User manual

After installation of KTC Server cost field processor is automatically created in Data Field Processors data source with name Cost Calculator and type Analyser Cost Calculator

Before starting to use field processor you have set all necessary parameters, which could be used during processing cost calculation. In order to do that login to Clayster Management tool and open Data Field Processors data source, then select in data source Cost Calculator item and edit it. In a picture below you can see properties window, where all parameters and options should be set up.

When option enabled Generate Price Fields the new fields will be created with Price suffix.

Formulas and output fields

Each field name has next construction

{Cost Type}, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}

Cost field that is based on climate corrected consumption value will have suffix {Climate Corrected} see snapshot below.

During producing fields by tariffs with Running and Environmental cost the calculation logic takes into account consumption value on each meter

Cost = Consumption value * Tariff value

In the case when tariff has Fixed cost the calculation result doesn't depend on consumption value

Cost = Tariff value

When cost field processor has enabled option Generate Price Fields then field name will have Price suffix

{Cost Type}, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}, {Price} where Price = Tariff value

Cost field with VAT part has specified name that starts from VATGross and calculated by next formula, where VATGross by default 0.25

VATGross, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}

VATGross = Cost * VATGross

Cost field with VAT Net part has specified name that starts from VATNet and calculated by next formula

VATNet, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}

VATNet =  VATGross * (1 - VATRegPart)

where VATRegPart (for meter) is a Sum of (PartOfBuilding) * (Building PartVATRegistred)  for all building in which meter share some part

Cost field that includes VAT has specified name and calculated by next formula

CostIncVATGross, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}

CostIncVATGross = Cost  + VATGross

Cost field that includes VAT Net part has specified name and calculated by next formula

CostIncVatNet, by {Tariff Name} tariff, {Period Type}, {Production Type/Utility Type}

CostIncVATNet = Cost + VATNet
