Regulated messages always contain power values. The unit in which the power values are presented depends on type of power, i.e. active or reactive.
- Active power is expressed in Watts (W), Kilowatts (KW or KWT) and Megawatts (MW).
- Inductive and Capacitive reactive power is expressed in Volt-Amperes-reactive (VAR), Kilo Volt-Amperes-Reactive (KVAR or KVR) and Mega Volt-Amperes-Reactive (MVAR).
- Non-regulated metering data can contain quantities other than power, and will be labelled with the corresponding unit
There is no energy use in KWh in the published data.
