Distribution losses can be difficult to measure when the loss power has a similar proportion to monitoring equipment sensor tolerances. Measurements for the Western Power Distribution Losses Investigation project have addressed this problem by using high resolution demand measurements combined with loss calculations with an I2R method. This is combined with additional measurements to verify accuracy of the network database used to calculate losses in each network branch.
