ATR, ABR and Thru Rate are used to indicate the per-unit rate of electricity in terms of tariff decided by the Regulator, being sold out to the consumers and revenue received. they are measured in Rs./Unit.
Let's have a look on full form of these abbreviations and its defination:
Thru Rate = Revenue Realized/Input Energy.
There is a very slight difference in ABR and ATR. If all consumers of the different categories are billed perfectly and accurately, ABR will be the same as ATR. So, ATR is nothing but ABR (Average billing rate) with a 100% accurate billing.
ABR = Current Assessment/Billed Energy.
The aggregate technical and commercial (AT&C) losses shall also be measured using the average billing rate (ABR) and through rate. Note that ABR should be with accurate billing for getting an accurate result.
AT&C Loss = (1-Through Rate/ ABR)x100.
