[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to propose an analytical methodology and discuss some alternatives of artificial neural network models in order to evaluate losses in distribution systems, particularly in distribution transformers. The procedure can also be extended to other components of the distribution system (secondary and primary network and HV/MV transformers). This is accomplished by using the utility's database such as the consumers' monthly energy consumption and the typical load curves of each class of consumption and type of activity developed.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This work presents a case study on technology assessment for power quality devices. A system compatibility test protocol for power quality mitigation devices was developed in order to evaluate the functionality of three-phase voltage restoration devices. In order to case test this test protocol, a development platform with reduced power for DVR (Dynamic Voltage Restorer), the micro-DVR, was tested, and results were discussed based on voltage disturbances standards.
