Energy efficiency optimization in distribution transformers considering Spanish distribution regulation policy

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 27 October 2010brPaola, Pezzini , Oriol, Gomis-Bellmunt , Joan, Frau-Valentí , Antoni, Sudrià-AndreubrIn transmission and distribution systems, the high number of installed transformers, a loss source in networks, suggests a good potential for energy savings. This paper presents how the Spanish Distribution regulation policy, Royal Decree 222/2008, affects the overall energy efficiency in distribution transformers. The objective of a utility is the maximization of the benefit, and in case of failures, to install a chosen transformer in order to maximize the profit. Here, a novel method to optimize energy efficiency, considering the constraints set by the Spanish Distribution regulation policy, is presented; its aim is to achieve the objectives of the utility…
