Say a power station transmits 1008 MWh of power per year to a facility however they only receive 900 MWh say the transmission line is 15 km long how would you calculate average power loss per km, now I know that theoretically it will just be 7.2 MWh per km but what calculations would you make to get there?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Additional Info:

Cable Type: FLAMINGO (ACSR)

Voltage:132kV

Cable Diameter:25mm

Resistance: 0.315 Ohms per MFT
