Abstract

Losses in transmission and distribution network is not only a technical loss but also an economic loss. However, it is hard to eliminate these losses, but they could be minimized by network improvements and proper management. Therefore, it is important to encourage transmission and distribution licensees to minimize their respective losses. Declaring allowed loss or a loss target by the regulator is one way to encourage. This paper describes a scientific approach to establish electricity transmission and distribution loss targets for Sri Lanka during the period from 2021 to 2025. This study concludes that a target loss of 7.23% of net generation is feasible for year 2025 in Sri Lanka’s transmission and distribution network.
