I found in a book the equation for the power loss caused by the heating effect of current in the transmission lines as below: Ploss = Iloss2R = (Pout/V)2R A friend of mine commented that the last bit "(Pout/V)2R" is unnecessary, confusing and wrong (but won't tell me why). Is my friend correct? Is there a way to calculate power loss using voltage? Someone pls help explain. Thanks!
