Energy supply and stability are important topics in modern society. In order to address both of these needs, we have investigated ways of an improvement on electrical transmission. Transmission lines naturally lose energy that flows through them. We analyzed the quality of being possible, making our current electrical grid methods opposing the customarily alternating current (AC) to lessen power lost in an economical way. By comparing cost and energy loss. This work aim at examining the power losses in Nigerian 330kV network, to provide dependable models and techniques for the optimization of loss minimization in 330kV transmission network to provide dependable technical model for loss reduction strategies implementation. Electrical Transmission system takes electric power from generation system and delivers it to distribution. Moreover, an important parts of the electric power generated is lost on the transmission network. The implementation of the loss reduction strategies was done using ETAP 16.0. The sum of all energy loss is 824.184 MW which represent 21.41% of total energy generation, by implementation of the losses reductions strategies the total losses on the network, the losses reduce to 657.734 MW which represents 17.1% of the total sum of energy generated and represent 20.2% reduction of the total sum of energy loss. This percentage (17.1%) revels that there is a total loss reduction of about 4.31% of losses for strategy one. Losses reduced from 639 MW to 200.990 MW representing 44.8% of the sum of energy losses of 824.142 MW and losses reduced from 200.990 MW to 158.64 MW which represents 19.25 % of energy losses on the previous strategy on the network for the case of strategy 2 and 3 respectively. The total energy recovered from the implementation of the loss strategies to the network is 521.69 MW which represents 63.2% of the energy loss recovered
