Abstract

Power quality is an important factor to consider when dealing with distribution of electrical power to final consumers. Though there are several methods employed to improve power quality but in this research load tap changer is used because of its simplicity and economical value. Electrical Transient Analyzer Program (ETAP) is used to model and simulate the Iwofe injection network, on simulation it was discovered that the network was characterized by low power factor, high power losses and under voltage which causes the buses to be flagged critical. After Application of the optimization technique the power factor increased to 90.20% and power losses reduced to 0.168MW respectively leading to increase in performance, voltage stability and accommodation of real power in the system.
