%X Restructuring in electrical power distribution utilities, energy loss management is one of the critical activities to enhance network efficiency. Accordingly, monitoring of technical loss and strategic planning for loss reduction would be a main target of asset manager. For loss monitoring, the usual methods of loss calculation and estimation need numerous data which is not used mostly to utilize real networks. In this research, a practical method for loss monitoring is introduced according to the viewpoint of components’ supply chain to network. For this purpose, indictors are extracted by the focus group for each process of component inserting and their probability distribution functions are calculated. Then, permissible values of indicators are determined by the Delphi method and to calculate new probability functions, the probability distance of each process is calculated. Finally, a real distribution network with historical data is used here to study the proposed method. The results illustrate that the most deviation is in the design process from the power loss viewpoint.
