In this paper, the electrical distribution network reconfiguration to achieve loss reduction, load balancing and improve voltage profile in the presence of Distributed Generation (DG) with the gravitational search algorithm (GSA), is investigated. By choosing a 33-bus IEEE sample network and running a computer simulation on it, it is observed that the results of this rearrangement are comparable with similar papers.
