Abstract

Restructuring in the electrical distribution utilities, the loss management is one of the critical activities to enhance network efficiency. Accordingly, management of technical loss would be the main target of the asset managers. For loss management, the usual methods of loss calculation and estimation need numerous data which is not used to real networks. In this research, a practical method for loss management is introduced from the viewpoint of components’ supply chain to the network. For this purpose, sub-indictors are extracted using focus group for each process of this chain and their probability distribution functions are calculated. Then, permissible values of sub-indicators are determined by the Delphi method and to calculate new probability functions, the deviation of each process is calculated. Finally, a real network with historical data is used here to study the proposed method. The results illustrate that the most deviation is in the sub-indicator design process about 91% in the viewpoint losses.
