Load shedding is a type of protection to prevent total blackout for electrical power system. It is the best method available to counter power imbalance between generator and load demand. There are many load shedding schemes implemented by industries in tackling this problem such as manual load shedding, under frequency load shedding and under voltage load shedding. This paper discuss one of that implementation through AHP and TOPSIS approach as an analysis tool in giving out an additional information for the operator to determine which load should be shed first. AHP and TOPSIS are part of Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) in solving complex decision marking based on alternatives and criteria given. Therefore in this study, the analysis outcome in interest is to remove loads by ranking them according to their priority. By earning the first rank means that the priority is less as the load shedding module aim is to ensure power continuity to only vital and most critical loads in the system. With the result obtain from this analysis it can be used by the operator with an assumption that the efficiency of load shedding scheme can greatly increase.
