Article Title: Power flow and Contingency Assessment Simulation of the expanding 330KV Nigeria Grid Using Power World Simulator
by Izuegbunam F. I., Duruibe S. I. and Ojukwu G. G.

This paper considered the 330kV Nigeria power grid with a view of estimating the real and reactive power flows, power losses in the entire network and bus phase angles using Power World Simulator. The simulation result of the existing 330kV power grid indicates that Damaturu and Gombe bus voltages were out of tolerance with per unit and actual values of 0.94432, 311.63kV and 0.94497, 311.84kV respectively. Substantial losses occurred along some transmission lines like Osogbo-Aiyede (18.78MW), Osogbo-Ikeja-West (6.28 MW), Jos-Mando (5.49MW) and Osogbo-Benin (5.20MW). The power loss of existing grid totaled 85.3MW, while the expanded and fortified grid showed power losses of 32MW and 24.7MW respectively
