Seminar Description

Many electric utilities are embarking on programs to reduce electric losses on their systems, both as a measure of energy conservation and as an alternate to adding system capacity. Because a majority of the losses occur in the distribution system, most of these programs focus on reducing distribution system losses. Significant reduction in distribution losses is possible and economically justifiable.

Analytical and optimization techniques, and a system approach to apply them, have been developed to help attain the loss reduction. This seminar focuses on these loss reduction techniques, as well as methods for improving and coordinating the planning, design, and operation of the distribution system. Methods for economic selection of individual system components, such as conductors and transformers, are also discussed. This seminar also reviews the basic loss calculations and analysis tools.

Outline:
I. Introduction
II. Loss Calculation
III. Economic Analysis
IV. Loss Reduction Techniques
V. Transformers
VI. Implementation Strategies
VII. Summary / Conclusion
