As a growing technology the energy demand is also increasing day by day. To meet the total demand of consumers and to equalize demand with generation several methods carried out under energy conservation and one of the most popular and effective method is Energy auditing. With this scenario, the audit team conducted a preliminary audit on the industrial loads with 27 industries in a single feeder. A preliminary audit conducted and collected data through all the possible ways. Then detailed analysis completed through ETAP software of all the collected data and suggested recommendations based on the observed data to the consumers. These recommendations implemented and tested the stability analysis of the system with ETAP software and concluded with the reduction of energy consumption from various industries.
