Q.8:- What do you mean by transmission and distribution losses? How can they be reduced?
Transmission and Distribution (T&D) losses refer to theft of power which has not been controlled.
Nation’s average loss is 23%.
T&D losses can be reduced by having:
- Appropriate size of conductors
- Proper load management
- Meter supply
- Privatisation of distribution work
- Introduction of energy audits. Some steps have already been initiated in this direction.
