Transmission loss in GWh in India. Data from Central Electricity Authority. Click on the image for hi-res version. All data available here.

transmission loss v. year

Transmission loss as % of net generation in GWh. Net generation = Gross generation — consumption by auxiliary power plant unitstransmission loss as  of net generation in GWh

(Model used to fit: LOESS)

Rise of net supply to ultimate consumers and exports v. purchase of power from non-utilities and imports before transmission. Note different y-axes: net supply, right; purchase, left; both in GWh


About Me

I’m a science editor and writer in India, interested in high-energy and condensed-matter physics, research misconduct, pseudoscience, science’s relationship with society, epic fantasy, open source/access/knowledge systems, H.R. Giger’s art, Goundamani’s comedy, Factorio, and most things that require a lot of time to get the hang of.
