Continuity in power supply for the consumers is a permanent concern from the utilities, pursued with the development of technological solutions in order to improve the performance of network restoration conditions. Using remotely controlled switches corresponds to one possible approach to reach such an improvement and gives some convenient remote resources, such as the fault detect, isolation, and transfer loads. This paper presents a methodology implemented in a computer programming language for allocation of these devices in electric distribution systems based on the analytic hierarchical process (AHP) method. The main contributions focus on considering the impact of installing remotely controlled switches in the reliability indices and the AHP decision-making algorithm for the switches allocation. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated with case studies involving actual systems of the AES Sul utility located in Southern Brazil.
