KPI Details : Power Transmission & Distribution Loss as a Percentage of Total Output

Power Transmission & Distribution Loss as a Percentage of Total Output measures the amount of power transmission and distribution loss (in quads) incurred by the company in relation to the total output of power the company generates over the same period of time. A relatively high value for this metric is typically related to a few common factors, including power supply insufficiencies, distribution system equipment outages (due to damage, bad weather, faulty equipment, etc.), and outages due to poor equipment positioning or setup. Excessive values for this metric can lead to poor customer satisfaction and high attrition rates.

KPI Best Practices : Power Transmission & Distribution Loss as a Percentage of Total Output

  • Perform regular inspections of connections, fuses, transformers, etc. to monitor performance and efficiency
  • Be sure to balance electrical power loads and not overload power lines
  • Avoid installing transformers too far from the load centers

KPI Calculation Instructions Power Transmission & Distribution Loss as a Percentage of Total Output?

Two values are used to calculate this KPI: (1) the amount of power transmission and distribution loss incurred by the company, and (2) the total output of power the company generates over the same period of time.The amount of power transmission and distribution loss should be measured in quads (a unit of energy equal to 1 quadrillion British thermal units) in this calculation. Include all types of transmission and distribution loss incurred by the company (e.g., power supply insufficiencies, distribution system equipment outages, outages due to poor equipment positioning or setup, etc.) in this calculation.

KPI Formula :

(Power Transmission and Distribution Loss Incurred / Total Output Generated) * 100
