Abstract


In this paper evaluation of power losses in the urban distribution feeders has been done. In Pakistan few methods had been implemented by Distribution Company to minimize technical power losses in urban distribution feeders. Observation in one year of three urban distribution feeders of Bahawalpur city region has been done, and conclusions are given. Feeders loads and distribution system arrangement has been assessed by conducting field survey method. Induction loads are supplied by the urban distribution feeders. Monthly power loss in percentage, line length (L), power factor (Pf) and capacity of line has been analyzed. Three feeders have been discussed by the sampled data. Critical observations were curtailed. Recommendations are there for up grading effectiveness of system and negotiating power losses by technical studies.
