This paper explains the effects of bus numbering using a load-flow study to investigate the Nigerian 330 kV radial transmission networks. The objectives of this research include the Newton-Raphson-based load-flow analysis and verification of power losses. The simulation of the load-flow analysis is carried out using the software of Power World Simulator and MATIAB, while verification of power losses is simulated with only MATIAB software. The Nigerian 330-kV transmission lines used in this study are radial and are overloaded; thus, it has been subjected to numerous studies covering many areas as to how improvements can be made. All these studies aimed at increasing the efficiency of the network and reduce real and reactive power losses. In this study, analysis is carried out on the failure to convergence; the result of load-flow as obtained for the 28-bus power system of the Nigerian 330-kV network using two different bus identification numbering sequence types. The results of the NewtonRaphson load-flow solution in Power World Simulator and MATIAB platform obtained for each of the two bus identification types revealed the convergence failure in one identification model numbering type. This result's inconsistency further necessitated the study of load-flow analysis on the Nigerian 330-kV network for other different bus identification numbering types as reviewed from past work for case studies. The same bus data and transmission line data obtained from PHCN are used for all the bus numbering model types generated in the study.The results revealed variations in the real and reactive power losses and the number of iterations in solving each case. Besides, the study discovered that the failure in convergence comes from the power solution method's failure (software) used, hence, a code-based platform should be used for verification.
