An advanced losses modelling methodology based on power system analysis of network models has been developed and validated. This has enabled significantly improved quantification of technical losses compared to existing practice. Losses modelling traditionally used a 'top-down' approach to quantify losses across voltage levels. This simplistic technique is prone to various sources of inaccuracy and is unable to capture the impact of embedded generation or loss interventions in detail. The
more » ... ed approach gives much more detailed information on the losses characteristics of networks, which better facilitates identification of high loss assets in increasingly complex networks.
