Bamigbola, M. Ali, K. A modern and civilized society is so much dependent on the use of electrical energy because it has been the most powerful vehicle for facilitating economic, industrial, and social developments. Electrical energy produced at power stations is transmitted to load centres from where it is distributed to its consumers through the use of transmission lines run from one place to another. As a result of the physical properties of the transmission medium, some of the transmitted power is lost to the surroundings. The overall effect of power losses on the system is a reduction in the quantity of power available to the consumers.

Like all other power system systems, no matter how carefully the system is designed, losses are present and must be modeled before an accurate representation of the system response can be calculated. Due to the size of the area that the power system serves, the majority of the system components are dedicated to power transmission. The focus of this paper is to describe the losses that occur in the transmission system, present component models, and investigate ways to reduce these losses. When current flows in a transmission line, the characteristics exhibited are explained in terms of magnetic and electric field interaction.
A transmission line is used for the transmission of electrical power from generating substation to the various distribution units. It transmits the wave of voltage and current from one end to another. The transmission line is made up of a conductor having a uniform cross-section along the line. Air act as an insulating or dielectric medium between the conductors. For safety purpose, the distance between the line and ground is much more.
Distribution Sector considered as the weakest link in the entire power sector. There are two types of transmission and distribution losses:. Technical Losses 2. Non-Technical Losses Commercial Losses. The technical losses are due to energy dissipated in the conductors, equipment used for transmission line, transformer, sub- transmission line and distribution line and magnetic losses in transformers. Technical losses are normally The major amount of losses in a power system is in primary and secondary distribution lines.
ing the transmission-line parameters (i.e., the circuit elements). Consider a very long section of a transmission line, such Although all lines have losses, they.
According to the Department of Energy, California lost about The former occurs because of the non-zero resistance found wire's metal. Corona loss is an ionization of the air that occurs when the electric fields around a conductor exceed a specific value. Although the conductors in a transmission line have extremely low resistivity, they are not perfect. This section seeks to quantify that loss through computation of the skin depth and power attenuation factors. The amount of resistive loss in a system can be found estimated by using corona-free transmission line equations to find the amount of power delivered to any point along the wire and subtracting the initial amount of power.
