This project represent the electrical losses analysis which conducted in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. The project was conducted on the 11 kV distribution system which consist of UTP Old Building and New Academic Complex. As discussed above, the system electrical losses can be divided into two sections which are technical losses and non-technical losses. One of the effects is decreasing economic growth of the country. Technical losses consist of internal losses such as transformer losses, copper losses, line losses and others while non-technical losses or known by external losses occurred due to the accounting mistake, metering and theft. The purpose of this project is to analyze the technical losses that occurred in the UTP network in focusing more on the line losses. This project is conducted to evaluate and analyze the performance of the current electrical network and preparing for future expansion of the network which includes the generation from renewable energy. In addition, the project is conducted to determine whether the current performance of the network is in optimum condition or otherwise. The analysis will be conducted by using Power world as the simulator of the project which using load flow and power flow analysis methods. The line losses mostly cause by resistance and inductance in the cable of the lines. The outcome of this project is the total losses of the whole system of UTP electrical network and also the line losses of the cables between the busses. Lastly, the author discussed about the methods to reduce the losses that occurred in the system. The objectives of the project are achieved.
