Switching Optimization is a tool to automatically determine the optimal system configuration to achieve a single or multiple user-specified objectives.
It provides optimal status of existing switching devices and suggests locations for new tie open points in the system. It can be used by the design or operation engineers to minimize system real losses and reduce or eliminate abnormal operating conditions.
This tool can be applied on large scale distribution radial and lightly looped three-phase or single-phase systems. It is capable of considering a single load level, multiple load levels, as well as a user specified load profile
