This paper describes the use of an interactive evolutionary algorithm for the identification and selection of direct load control actions in electrical distribution networks. The evolutionary algorithm accommodates a progressive articulation of the decision maker's preferences by changing aspiration or reservation levels used in the fitness assessment of the individuals in the population (load control strategies). Genetic operators have revealed as an adequate way to supply the evolutionary process with relevant information about the search results. Besides contributing to reduce the scope of the search, and thus the computer effort, this also enables the identification of solutions more in accordance with the decision maker's evolving preferences.
