The efficiency of network reconfiguration depends on both the efficiency of the loss estimation technique and the efficiency of the reconfiguration approach itself. We propose two novel algorithmic techniques for speeding-up the computational runtime of both problems. First, we propose an efficient heuristic algorithm to solve the distribution network reconfiguration problem for loss reduction. We formulate the problem of finding incremental branch exchanges as a minimum cost maximum flow… CONTINUE READING
