Transmission and Distribution Losses

Transmission and Distribution Losses
  T&D Losses
  • The losses that result from inherent resistance in electrical conductors and transformation inefficiencies in distribution transformers in a transmission and distribution network.
  • Losses the result from the friction that energy must overcome as it moves through wires to travel from the generation facility to the customer. Because of losses, the demand produced by the utility is greater than the demand that shows up on the customer bills.
