Demands for electricity in Malaysia are expected to rise between five to six per cent for the next two to three years in line with increasing urbanization and rapid industrialization in the country. Malaysia is currently enjoying a healthy generating reserve capacity in the electricity sector, with an additional increase of 4,780 megawatt (MW) new generating capacity. Based on actual ratio/percentage of power generated compare to power consumed, it is found out that the percentage is not in line with demand and for some cases the power generated is more than the demand that needed. Therefore there is a need to do a research in order to tackle this problem. For the generation side based from the research there is always an excessive power generated that has been use for power reserve. This reserve power should be use wisely instead of being reserve only. In this study case a new idea will be proposed to make a full use of this extra reserve and produce the best method of managing excessive power generated without even affecting the capacity of power in reserve. Sample of power demand and generation data were taken from Tenaga National Berhad (TNB) for the purpose of comparison of data. Part of the studies include study on the model of load curve and comparison with the previous 2 years of data. This research will also focuses on the effect of high peak load in total power demand. The results were analyzed and will be discussed based on literature and previous results obtained by other research. The significant of the project can be a modeling guide line to the power generation design of other researcher to cater for the problem that occurs.
