Abstract: Distribution network reconfiguration (DNR) is a tool used by operators to balance line load flows and mitigate losses. As distributed generation and flexible load adoption increases, the impact of DNR on the security, efficiency, and reliability of the grid will increase as well. Today, heuristic-based actions like branch exchange are routinely taken, with no theoretical guarantee of their optimality. This paper considers loss minimization via DNR, which changes the on/off status of switches in the network. T…
