Abstract

This paper carries out the power flow studies of the distribution network of Abule-Egba regional area using the Run Load-Flow Functionality (RLFF) of the ETAP software developed algorithm. The part of real network of Abule-Egba distribution network was modeled and simulated through load- flow analysis. This work generates report on the load-flow and the real and reactive power loadings of each transformer unit of the network. This report was analyzed using simulation by the plotting of graph imported into Matlab software environment. The result obtained for the bus voltage and current level, transformer rating and load distribution efficien-cy based on voltage and current variations under the existing normal operational mode were compared and analyzed with the reaction of surrounding network under abnormal condition when a three-phase fault system is simulated. By comparing these results (as shown in table 1), the reaction of the electrical system of Abule-Egba to three-phase fault at the various feeders can be predicted
