Optimal capacitor placement in the distribution network is the most popular technique adopted for the control of power loss and enhancement of Volts Ampere Reactive for effective power delivery. This study, therefore, discusses improvement of distribution efficiency of 11kV power lines through placement of capacitor banks in the network. Power flow in the network, Ado-Ekiti 11kV lines, was carried out using Newton-Rapson iteration method available in MATLAB while the analysis of the network was actualized using the conventional load flow equation modeling. From the analysis of the network, voltage deviation falls within the range of -5.9 to -180.5% which is completely outside the permissible range of ±5%. Voltage drop on the feeders is within the range (1.2 – 1.9) kV before and (0.2 – 0.7) kV after the reactive power of the network was compensated.
