Abstract: The mean utility T & D efficiency in India is 78.8 per cent while the mean T & D efficiency in private networks is 87.3 per cent. The mean capacity loss in utility T & D networks is 20.6 per cent while in private networks it is 10.6 per cent. In both, utility and private T & D networks, conductors/cables followed by transformers are the main elements causing the losses. In this paper the strategies for improvement in T & D efficiency, minimizing the capacity losses and improvement in power quality, are presented. The results of experimental work on systems are also presented in the form of curve fits. The main suggestions are centered on upgrading operating voltage, automation, network re-configuration, operational optimization, demand management, and system modernization.
