This paper presents the analysis of losses for conversion from low voltage distribution system to high voltage distribution system based on simulation of typical power distribution network in agriculture feeder. Conversion from LVDS to HVDS involves removal of existing distribution transformer (100kVA/63kVA) and installation of distribution transformer (25kVA) near to the consumer load and conversion of the existing low voltage (0.433 kV) line into high voltage (11kV) line.
