Abstract: In the past, the consumption of electricity is prime motto, as it is available in lot with a capacity to do work, but as the time spent, now time is to conserve the electricity not to consume the electrical energy. In fact, it has become essential ingredient for improving the quality of life and its absence is associated with poverty and poor quality of life. Sub-transmission and distribution systems constitute the link between electricity utilities and consumers. Efficient functioning of the segment of the electricity utility is essential to sustain the growth of the power sector and the economy of the country. So, the present situation is characterized by unacceptable high losses, power quality and reliability of supply, billing sector, revenue collection, frequent interruptions in supply and thus consumer dissatisfaction etc. Distribution Sector requires economical system to provide electrical energy at a suitable prize and at a minimum voltage drop to reduce the voltage regulation. So, we require the economical way to provide the electrical energy by State Electricity Boards to various consumers at minimum voltage drop and reduce the regulation of voltage. This paper presents the various aspects of High Voltage Distribution System commissioned for improvement of voltage drop profile in the distribution sectors for economical way to customer’s satisfaction.
