This research project considers the theoretical analysis and computational implementation of a specialized genetic algorithm, which works in a reduced search space, applied to the problem of primary feeder reconfiguration in distribution systems of electric power. Thus, we intend to develop a genetic algorithm of Chu-Beasley specialized generating proposed solutions only in a reduced search space of the problem of reconfiguration of distribution systems. As part of the research project, you should also implement a specialized algorithm for radial load flow to find the losses of each proposed solution chosen by metaheuristic and also to verify that the proposed solution is feasible from an operational standpoint, this is that there are no violations of current limits on feeders or voltage limits on buses. With the algorithm developed is intended to test large systems existing in the literature.
