If it keeps happening, it will decrease the reliability of the electric power system and the distributed quality of the electricity power as well as it can damage the equipment. Therefore, unbalanced loading should be decreased at the phase, and overloading at the network will cause PT PLN (Persero) loss in the Kotamobagu Area. This research aims to analyze voltage drop, percentage of voltage drop, and power loss at every medium voltage feeder of 20 KV that is supplied from PLTD (Steam Power Plant) Kotamobagu until every transformer of distribution at peak load. After it is analyzed, the feeder OK 1, OK 2, OK 3, OK 4, OK 5 obtain the most significant value of drop voltage for 7.221 KV, 1.94 KV, 6.472 KV, 5.04 KV, 4.878 KV, respectively, with a percentage value of 56.507%, 10.742%, 47.841%, 33.689 %,32.257%. All OK happen at powerhouse K-153 (Kobo Besar), K-158 (RS. Monompia Kotamobagu), K-187 (Poopo I), K-201 (Motoboi Kecil), K-287 (Moyag I), respectively. The most significant power loss of 11.890 KW, 4.820 KW, 9.819 KW, 7.311 KW, 10.533 KW happen at powerhouse K-140 (Matali I), K-158 (RS. Monompia Kotamobagu), K-167 (Bilalang V), K-201 (Motoboi Kecil) and K-287 (Moyag I), respectively.</em></p>}, number={1}, journal={JEECS (Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences)}, author={Bachari, Yuslizar E.P. and Mohamad, Yasin and Yusuf, Taufiq Ismail and Amali, Lanto Mohamad Kamil}, year={2024}, month={Jun.}, pages={79–88} }
