The planning problem of electrical power distribution networks, stated as a mixed nonlinear integer optimization problem, is solved using the ant colony system algorithm (ACS). The behavior of real ants has inspired the development of the ACS algorithm, an improved version of the ant system (AS) algorithm, which reproduces the technique used by ants to construct their food recollection routes from their nest, and where a set of artificial ants cooperate to find the best solution through the… CONTINUE READING
