	  abstract     = {This paper presents a novel approach for optimal
reconfiguration of radial distribution systems. Optimal
reconfiguration involves the selection of the best set of branches to
be opened, one each from each loop, such that the resulting radial
distribution system gets the desired performance. In this paper an
algorithm is proposed based on simple heuristic rules and identified
an effective switch status configuration of distribution system for the
minimum loss reduction. This proposed algorithm consists of two
parts; one is to determine the best switching combinations in all loops
with minimum computational effort and the other is simple optimum
power loss calculation of the best switching combination found in
part one by load flows. To demonstrate the validity of the proposed
algorithm, computer simulations are carried out on 33-bus system.
The results show that the performance of the proposed method is
better than that of the other methods.},
