Abstract: This report analyses technically the energy saving potentials in electricity grids including both transmission and distribution parts. The focus is on technical active loss reduction in electricity grid through different sitings of flexible power generators (like gas turbines). For the study a simplified triangular shape grid configuration is used containing three nodes connected through three lines each with other. The study area is considered the North Sea due to the relatively high wind power potential. The study results indicate that active losses could be reduced as much as by 40% through optimization of the electricity system topology.
