Technical Losses in Non-Rural Distribution Feeders of Nawabshah Substation - Analysis & Estimation
This paper presents the energy loss of the non-rural distribution feeder. Currently in Pakistan, the distribution companies in Water and Power Development Authorities (WAPDA) have implemented different methods to reduce technical losses of distribution feeders. But these methods are difficult to adopt due to their complexities. Therefore, the main aim of the research is to assess the energy loss of non-rural distribution feeders of Nawabshah region. The methodology is based on an on-site survey while providing the inductive loads on distribution feeders. Three main parameters have been analyzed in this study which include monthly power loss in percentage, power factor (PF), and line capacity. The method adopted for the on-site survey and the results obtained through the analysis of the
collected data unraveled the techniques which lead to a substantial reduction in electricity cost and improvement in the overall efficiency of the system.
