This work investigated one of the load shedding methods, namely the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) on an actual power system in Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) in Pekan, Pahang to improve its reliability and stability. The objective of choosing and implementing this technique to the power system was to obtain an optimal load shedding strategy for UMP, Pekan Campus which currently does not have one but dependent on the persons-in-charge to do the load shedding based on their own expertise and experience to the system without any proper guidelines. By using AHP, the prioritization of load to be shed is achieved based on selected criteria and alternatives that has been extracted from the UMP, Pekan Campus electrical distribution. All the pertinent load data were inserted into Microsoft Excel and the AHP algorithm developed then applied to analyze which load to be shed first and so on. The result obtained shows that AHP method chooses the load with the highest volume as highest priority load to be shed. The load with highest volume in term of power supplied is chosen to be the first load to be shed in this power system.
