In this paper, we present the greedy reconfiguration algorithm (GRA) and the fast greedy reconfiguration algorithm (FGRA)-two reconfiguration algorithms that minimize the energy not supplied (ENS) of medium-voltage (MV)-distribution network (DNs). The algorithms are derived from a graph-theoretic model for the MV-DNs and an iterative formulation for the ENS. Given a DN composed of n loads, GRA yields an initial radial topology with minimal ENS after executing n-1 iterations of a multistage… CONTINUE READING
