Nigeria has encountered numerous power issues in recent years, including limited and irregular power supply, high power costs, and underdeveloped power facilities, all of which have had major negative consequences on the country's socio-economic development. To improve power availability in buildings and ensure adequate usage efficiency, this paper presents the development of a smart electric power distribution algorithm for multi-source and segmented loads, for implementation on distribution boards. This research aims to develop an algorithm that may be used to support the current building wire infrastructure in Nigeria, allowing for 24/7 reliable power supply and effective management of limited power supply in buildings. It employs a multi-source and segmented load system to provide reliability and energy efficiency measures to balance power supply and demand in buildings. Actual data from offices in the engineering complex of Niger State Polytechnic Zungeru, Nigeria, was used to simulate the developed system in MATLAB Simulink. Results showed that the developed algorithm conserved power by 33.71% compared to the conventional distribution board.
