Abstract

The objective of this paper is to provide new research on the linkages between voltage asymmetry, energy efficiency, and resource efficiency to inform policymaking in this area about the possibilities of electricity saving potential. Asymmetry voltage coefficients value in Ukrainian grid were experimentally identified based on assessments of 23 Ukrainian companies during 2016-2018. It was estimated, that 26 % of transformers have asymmetry voltage coefficient of reverse sequence lower than 2 % and 12 % of transformers have asymmetry voltage coefficient of zero sequence lower than 2 %. The estimated resource saving potential for Ukrainian power generating plants is up to 1’978 GWhel/a, which is up to 1.5 % of total electricity produced. Equivalent reducing electricity generation at coal power plants could prevent emissions up to 292.79 t/a of ash emissions; 733 kt/a of CO2 emissions; 5.9 kt/a of SOx emissions; 2.9 kt/a of NOx emissions; 9.03 m3/a of nuclear waste.
