Abstract

Sarawak Energy Berhad formerly known as Sarawak Electricity Supply Corporation is owned by Sarawak Enterprise Corporation Berhad (SECB) and responsible for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Sarawak. In executing their responsibility in terms of distributing electricity network, Sarawak Energy Berhad also has encountered the problem that distribution network prone to trip due to heavy vegetation growth along their long spur lines. In order to overcome this problem, Sarawak Energy Berhad installed auto - reclosers (AR) at appropriate locations in their network. The objective of this research is to develop a methodology to determine the most suitable location of ARs and their numbers to be installed. In order to do that, Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy AHP will be used where all the data related such as the distribution location, length of feeder, load and composite reliability indexes will be collected. From this criterion the available alternatives chosen are town, village and forest. Both methods have their own method and calculation in obtaining the values that will reflect the ranking of priorities. By using this ranking of priorities, the best location for the placement of AR in the distribution system can be determined.
