The article considers the method of distribution of losses between nodes of electricity supply from the network on the basis of the distribution of electricity flows. The approach is based on the balance equations for the nodes and branches of the design scheme, which are written for electricity flows and loss flows. The method makes it possible to obtain a loss distribution similar to the proportional sharing method without calculating the targeting coefficients. On the basis of the distributed losses, correction factors are introduced for transmission tariffs that encourage consumers to further reduce losses.


Transmission tarif, electric energy losses, energy flow model, balance problem, correction factors.
