The power system analysis and design is generally done by using Load flow studies. The essence of power flow analysis is to find the magnitude and phase angle of voltage at each bus and the real and reactive power flows in each transmission lines. Therefore, load flow analysis is an important tool involving numerical analysis applied to a power system. This analysis is being executed at the stage of planning, operation, control and economic scheduling. Load flow analysis is performed on a symmetrical steady state operating condition of a power system under normal operating condition. This information is essential for the continuous monitoring of the current state of the system and for analyzing the effectiveness of alternative plans for future system expansion to meet increased load demand. For power flow analysis, this research considered the 330KV of northern Nigeria transmission network with a view of estimating the real and reactive power flows, power losses in the entire network and phase angle using Power System Analysis Toolbox (PSAT).
