In electric power system study, balanced system is often assumed. This is not usually so in a practical system, most especially in a distribution network in which consumers’ loads and or loading patterns vary. Hence, a single-phase cannot be sufficient to analyse a distribution network of three-phase lines and one neutral. In this study, Carson’s equation, which is a suitable approach for modelling the series impedance and shunt admittance of overhead line, is deployed to analyse a three-phase distribution network for which a computer-based WindMil application is used to verify. WindMil application is proposed in this study for distribution network analysis because of its robustness to handle several problems associated with it such as unbalanced system, voltage regulation, etc. Moreover, WindMil application is also user friendly and it is suitable for online teaching and learning of power system analysis with respect to novel coronavirus pandemic problem.
