In this paper, Montecarlo algorithm is used to estimate transmission losses in a power system. Load variations are simulated in order to estimate power system losses in different scenarios for a case study. Also, load flows are performed to feed an estimation algorithm based oil the average of 1000 random samples from each combination of the domain and variables defined for the loads. Finally, the estimate losses are compared to real losses.
