Application of Pareto Analysis to Faults Identification in Electrical Distribution Network: A Case Study of Ugbowo 11kV Feeder, Benin City, Nigeria
Application of Pareto Analysis technique in major feeder pillar faults identification is presented in this paper. Power outage data due to feeder pillar faults were collected between January, 2005 and September, 2007 from Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), Ugbowo district office, Edo State, Nigeria for four feeder pillars. The data were processed and Pareto Analysis technique was applied to the field data. The results obtained shows that eliminating wrong fusing and overloading in Edaiken 2 and Holex feeder pillars will reduce faults by 77.42 and 79.53% respectively while eliminating wrong fusing, overloading and line-to-line faults in Uwasota 2 and Holy Rosary feeder pillars will reduce faults by 87.9 and 88.35% respectively.
