How the Virginia Plan aim to improve the structure of the national government?

The VA Plan was: "a plan, unsuccessfully proposed at the Constitutional Convention, providing for a legislature of two houses with proportional representation in each house and executive and judicial branches to be chosen by the legislature." This would create a powerful legislature, and one dominated by populous states. The states with lower populations rightfully feared that this would reduce their power to control the laws and operation of the federal government. The plan was applied solely to the lower branch of Congress (the House) and the representation of slave states was settled by the 3/5th Compromise.

How did the Great Compromise create a legislature with representation which respected the population of large states and safe guarded and equalized the small states?

It proposed a bicameral legislative branch. The upper house, the senate, would have two representatives from each state. This satisfied the small states' plea for equal representation in Congress. The lower house, The House of Representatives, would please the large states in the way that state representation in the House was based off population. Larger states had more representation in the House, but representation was equal in the senate.
