Mapping of Power Distribution Network Using Geographical Information System (GIS)
This paper mainly focuses on the use of Geographical Information System in management of power distribution system. Traditional management system is not only manual but also has flaws such as difficulties in searching previous records and updating them, which is very time consuming task. Using GIS, Roads and buildings of UET Lahore have been mapped. Another layer of HT/LT network of UET Lahore overlaid on it. Databases have been created for poles, HT/LT lines and transformers, which stores the required information for decision making, future planning and analysis such as locations of dangerous/deteriorated poles, load on a particular transformer or location of loose jumpers of HT/LT lines.
