This study aims to develop a power system optimization simulation environment for one of Electrical Supply Grid in Peshawar Region where theoretical, calculated and collected data is used and proposes enhancements in the distribution system as per the results of the simulation of the Particle Swarm Optimizer and Newton Rhapson Algorithm on it. The simulation framework is cross-evaluated on the IEEE-30 Bus bar system and compared with eminent researches in this field. The results are plotted and tabulated first as a comparison and then as a proposed model for Peshawar Region’s selected substations and the involved grid.
