Abstract: In todays era distribution system complexity is increasing day by day. Due to this the possibility of occurrence of faults has also been increased. DAOP is one of the algorithms to run the load flow by reducing the losses in the network. Reconfiguration algorithm followed by the backtracking is very helpful in finding the best combination of the switches which when closed gives the minimum power loss. The paper describes the same algorithm manually performed on a small distribution network shown in section 2 and the work is verified by using Open DSS software.
