%X Two basic types of low voltage (LV) distribution exist in practice. The
systems based on the European approach have long LV feeders whose sizing
requires more careful design consideration than systems based on North
American practice with shorter LV feeders. The most important criterion
in conductor sizing is the correct estimation of the design loads. This
paper describes the development and application of a probabilistic
design method based on the Beta probability density function (pdf). The
paper investigates an approximate approach for estimating load
parameters in countries where a large load database is not available.
This approach estimates the Beta parameters from the group
after-diversity-maximum-demand (ADMD) for the customers.
