LINE LOSS

The power lost when a current passes through the resistance of the wires of an electrical distribution system from the source to the load. This power is given in watts and is calculated using the formula: Line loss = I2R. To keep this loss at a minimum large wires are used to reduce the resistance. High harmonic currents increase line loss due to the large I2 factor, which is why it is important, in order to save power, to reduce harmonic current flow in a distribution system. (see: Ampere; Resistance)
