This paper presents a method based on dynamic programming optimization to design distribution and industrial networks with unbalanced customers. Low-voltage and medium-voltage network customers can be three-phase (i.e., industrial and commercial) and single-phase (e.g,. residential and rural areas). Moreover, American medium-voltage distribution networks have single-phase lines (rural areas) and three-phase lines (urban and primary feeders). Optimization of an unbalanced network implies optimal assignation of single-phase customers to each phase. This works considers different conductor types, tapering, power losses in lines, capacity and voltage drop constraints and deterministic loads, all employing single-phase and three-phase lines. The necessary modifications to apply it by single-wire earth return systems is presented.
