Using a two-stage solution methodology and a modified simulated annealing technique, the authors develop a solution algorithm to the network reconfiguration problem, which is a constrained, multiobjective, nondifferentiable, optimization problem. This solution algorithm allows the designer to obtain a desirable, global noninferior point in a reasonable computation time. Also, given a desired number of switch-on/switch-off operations involved in the network configuration, the solution algorithm can identify the most effective operations. In order to reduce the computation time required, the idea of approximate calculations is explored and incorporated into the solution algorithm, where two efficient load-flow methods are employed; one for high temperature and the other for low temperature. The solution algorithm has been implemented in a software package and tested on a 69-bus system with very promising results
