Increased capital and generation costs coupled with the expense of losses are providing motivation to distribution engineers to improve their knowledge of the distribution system and apply that knowledge to improve its operation. Balancing of distribution circuit loads is an economic loss reduction technique to improve distribution system efficiency which is inexpensive and can be quickly accomplished. This paper demonstrates a relatively simple way to analyze potential distribution loss reductions and provides documentation, through presentation of system data, that verifies the validity of this approach.
