Beyond reliability of any power supply network, one of the most important utility needs in modern time is an actual quality of power being delivered to the consumers. Smart grid, which is the emerging future grid, requires not only reliable but also high power quality network. Power quality studies involve data gathering to model a distribution network under study. As efforts are made to improve the existing weak electric power network in Nigeria characterized by low reliability, the quality of power being delivered to the consumers requires adequate modelling as well. More often the sets of information required for this are not readily available and may pose problems for adequate design model. This paper examines the foregoing challenges involved in modelling the distribution network and proffers appropriate solutions. Characterizing power quality levels in distribution systems helps utility better respond to electric power consumers’ needs for higher power quality as part of preparations for a smart grid
