The new trend in electricity mSarket considers reactive power as an ancillary service which should be paid for it. Unbundling reactive power support leads to a necessity for an equitable and fair allocation mechanism for this support. The allocation mechanism is a prerequisite for a pricing scheme. In this paper an online algorithm using ‘energy transaction factors’ is presented and developed. Numerical results and comparisons show its accuracy.
