The unreliable distributed power supply in NSUKKA metropolis has liquated some companies, industries, private establishments that solely depend on power for their daily activities. The causes of unreliable power supply in NSUKKA metropolis are power losses in distribution network which has arisen as a result of eddy current, short circuit, over current, over voltage, low power factor etc. The unreliable power supply was overcome by modeling and simulation of NSUKKA 33KV distribution network for loss reduction using SSVC. It was achieved in this manner, Characterizing power loss in the Nsukka 33KV power Distribution Network, running the load flow of Nsukka 33KV power distribution without SSSC from the characterized data, Modeling the SSVC using simulink for minimizing Power losses in the Nsukka 33KV Power Distribution Network and integrating the SSVC and its control circuit into the Simulink Model of the Nsukka 33KV Power Distribution network and re-run the Load Flow. Finally, validating and justifying the percentage of distribution loss reduction in Nssuka 33KV power distribution network with and without SSSC. The results obtained were percentage of power loss at township in NSSUKA without SSVC was 4.28% while that when SSVC was incorporated in the system was 3.585%, the percentage of power loss at Wilson in NSSUKA when SSVC was not imbibed in the system was 7.12% while that when SSVC is incorporated was 5.963%, the percentage of conventional power loss observed at UNN in NSSUKA was 9.92% while that experienced when SSVC is incorporated in the system was 8.308% and the conventional percentage power loss at Onuiyi in NSSUKA was 4.28% while the percentage when of power loss at Onuiyi in NSSUKA when SSVC is imbibed in the system is 5.226%. With these results obtained, it indicated that the percentage improvement in power loss reduction in distribution network when SSVC was incorporated in the four towns in NSUKKA metropolis were 0.695% for township, 1.157% for Wilson, 1.612% for UNN and 1.02% for Onuiyi respectively.
