Technical Loss Reduction - Power Supply
1. Technical loss reduction could be achieved through several measures such as network reconfiguration, load balancing, network reconductoring, capacitor installation (shunt or series), employing auto voltage booster, relocation of distribution transformers at load centres, laying additional link lines, augmentation of distribution transformers, addition of new distribution transformers, Improving joints, increasing HT:LT ratio, adoption of HVDS (High Voltage Distribution System) and regular manages of distribution network.
2. The acceptable technical power loss levels are within the range of 8.25% to 15.5% depending on configuration of the network, physical parameters of the network, level of loading and prevalent operating voltage levels and etc.
3. In the long-term, plans for phased strengthening and improvement of the distribution systems along with related transmission system will have to be prepared or implemented on a regular basis.
