The users of power distribution and transmission networks are generally guided to sustain advanced power factor (PF) of load as it is affecting the power loss of a feeder network where it separately owns major influence on electric charges layout. Therefore, some cautious loss allotment schemes are to be incorporated and an acceptable satisfying/penalizing policy for advanced/less PF users, independently. Keeping this in view, the mentioned article proposed a new scheme, i.e., the active power loss allocation (APLA) procedure which allows power loss to the system distributors by considering the load demands, topographical localities, and PFs. A newly modified procedure assigns inducements hardly to all the involved utilizers against change in load PF continuously, where it is evaluated via proper mathematical and statistical study. The efficiency of the newly modified APLA scheme is explored in two dissimilar frameworks of low PF using 33 bus system radially distributed network (RDN). The interpretation is in favor of examined transmitted, distributed, and allows generated PF to be verified subsequently. Comparatively, the results achieved highlight the originality of the present method compared with different standard schemes/frameworks.
