Overview Of Losses And Solutions In Power Transmission Lines

Engr.Alumona T. L, Nwosu Moses. O, Ezechukwu A. O, Chijioke Jonah


Growing popupulations and industrilization creat huge need for electrical energy. Unfortunately, electricity is not always used in large demand in the same location it is been generated. So, long cables or wires are used to transmit the generated electricity either through Underground or Overhead system method, which is reffereed to as Transmission of Electrical Energy. This transmission those not take place without encoutering loses, which is the soul aim of this report. Studying the various types of loses encouted during electrical transmission.

The losses are either Technical losses or Non-technical Losses. The technical losses, which includes the; Corona loss, Juole effect, Magnetic Losses, and skin effect. While the Non-technical (commercial ) losses include, theift of electricity, vandalism to electrical substatio ns, poor meter reading, poor accounting and record keeping, etc.

There could be no best way, by explaining the various methods of Analysing calculations on how to solve this technical losses, and also explaining measures to be taken to makesure that transmission losses can be reduced to bearess minimum.

KEYWORDS----- Transmission Line, Losses, Energy, Electricity, Distribution Line, Voltage, Power Station, Corona Effect, Resistive Effect,  Technical Losses, and Electrical Power.
