Electricity is transmitted from the generating stations to the distribution center and consumers through transmission lines, to ensure that energy reaches consumers in the required form and quality, and losses along transmission lines must be minimized. In this project, losses were analyzed and reduced in the East network sector (66 kV) using a modern compensator Static VAR (Volt-Ampere Reactive) Compensator (SVC) and electrical network simulation in the NEPLAN program to validate its validity. In this project, three tests were carried out at different locations on the eastern grid to discover the most suitable place to place the static compensator for the best optimization of power loss. Finally, the compensator was placed in the Gedaref feeder where the best network optimization was obtained east of the sector (66 kV).
