AbstractMost rural electrical loads are Single Wire Earth return (SWER), mainly for budgetary reasons. However, many rural consumers do not have their needs fully met due to the SWER limited supply capacity and its and the inability to connect three-phase motors.. The solution planned to benefit these rural properties is through the repowering of the three-phase network. The present work sought to compare distribution network projects from an economic perspective, the Three-Phase Two-Wire System (T2F) and the Conventional Three-Phase System, pointing out the most profitable solution. All structures were selected according to the rules and procedures of rural aerial distribution networks, counted for one kilometer and extended up to twenty kilometers for comparison purposes. It was found that from five kilometers of network extension, the costs with T2F will be more advantageous in relation to the three-phase.
