    What do you mean by transmission and distribution losses? How can they be reduced?


    Power transmission and distribution losses refer to the losses that occur in transmission of electricity between the sources of supply and points of distribution. These losses occur due to the inherent resistance and transformation inefficiencies in the electrical conductors (conducting wires, etc) and distribution transformers respectively. In most of the states of our country it is more than 20%. It is due to our backward technology and pilferage involving of official staff these losses can be reduced by using high quality wires of appropriate resistance and proper positioning of transformers.
