The aim of this paper is to optimize the system after restoring and reconfigure the faulted area in a distribution network after isolating the faulted block. Restoration involves changing the switch status to maximize the supply to loads that are left unsupplied after fault removal. After system optimization using reconfiguration, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is used in order to control the switches by generating the pulses for the stable configuration. In the proposed system restoration and reconfiguration process is achieved in 16 bus system and simultaneously load flow analysis is performed before and after the fault and the same is verified in MATLAB. Optimization using Binary Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) is done in order to get the most stable configuration for restoration process by minimizing the LBI (Load Balancing Index). © 2005 - 2012 JATIT & LLS.
