An efficient radial distribution network reconfiguration method for minimization of energy losses over intervals of time is presented in this paper. In order to develop a simple and general method to solve the problem of network dynamic reconfiguration, the concept of system state characterization and its relevant applications are introduced in this paper, in which the computational effort required by traditional optimization method is decreased greatly through some appropriate linearization… CONTINUE READING
