This project work is aimed at developing an efficient Algorithm for the management of Electric Power network using fuzzy logic. The fuzzy logic model functions as a system operator in making decision for load shedding and transfer switching. The new developed algorithm will solve the problem of inefficiencies associated with the conventional methods for the management of the system. The new technique uses the system data frequency variation, load variation and voltage variation and the experience of the system operators to formulate fuzzy rules, which are then simulated using fuzzy logic toolbox in MATLAB. The fuzzy controller for the load shedding management of power system, was modeled and developed. Data collected from the New Haven Nigerian switch gear was used to formulate the fuzzy logic interference rules. Simulation results indicates a remarkable improvement in the performance of the load shedding management at the power plants. Using the fuzzy controller the delay in load shedding transfer switching was reduced from 600 s to 0.02316 s, representing 99.99% reduction in load shedding transfer switching. The fuzzy logic controller achieved a load shedding energy efficiency of 90.57% as indicated in table 4.2 of this research work.
