The purpose of this paper is to explore the obstructions faced by Libyan distribution networks in implementing a power quality program (PQP). It is also to state the benefits, which would accrue by implementing a PQP, which would make a major impact on Libyan distribution networks (LDNs), and which could be applied and adapted internationally. In order to achieve these objectives, an extensive literature review was conducted to understand the barriers and benefits of implementing a PQP, followed by a power quality survey questionnaire and interviews. Data were collected from LDNs, both from departments and individual staff members. Both SPSS 15.1 and Nvivo 9 were used in performing the analysis. The results revealed that no power quality program exists. Out of 16 barriers, 12 were statistically significant different since the P value <.05), which indicated that Libya distribution systems have already surmounted a few of the barriers to implementing a PQP effectively. The overall benefits of PQP implementation, which would have a positive impact on LDNs, are 11 benefits. Improving power quality disturbances (PQDs) and achieving the objectives of the implementation of PQP are, influenced by the distribution networks in tackle the obstacles, which remain. The findings of a LDN survey were compared with other studies and suggestions were made for the future improvement
