The topology of an Electrical Distribution System (EDS) can be suitably modified to minimize the real and reactive losses. EDS is normally unevenly loaded and hence often need load balancing, which can also be achieved by suitably reconfiguring the network. This paper presents a new approach for optimal reconfiguration of EDS based on efficient coding of chromosome and fuzzy modeling of mutation probability in the genetic paradigm. The proposed algorithm is tested for four case studies on a 69 bus EDS.
