The phasor Measurement Unit is a modern tracking tool mounted on a network to track and manage power systems. PMU is accurate and time-synchronized device that gives voltage phasor measurements in nodes and current phasor measurements connected to those nodes where the PMU is installed. This study introduces the Genetic Algorithm for optimization of allocation of PMUs to enable maximum observation of the power network. The optimal PMU placement (OPP) problem is developed to minimize the quantity of PMU to be placed. The set and optimized model can efficiently position PMU in any network, considering the regular operation and zero injection (ZIN). Thus, the allocation algorithm implemented on IEEE 14-bus systems, the result was compared to that of existing works which achieved the same system of redundancy index. As a further study, the proposed approach is applied to the Nigerian 330kV new 52-bus systems, under operational arrangements for maximum observability of the network system. The technique formulated to handle normal operation and zero injection node succeeded in producing comparable results with other available techniques.
