Abstract: Failure statistics show that distribution networks engage the most customer unavailability services. Because optimal reconfiguration of distribution systems has many advantages. So, this paper presents an efficient hybrid Big Bang-Big Crunch Optimization (HBB-BC) algorithm to solve a single-objective reconfiguration of the problem, such as system average interruption frequency index (SAIFI), system average interruption duration index (SAIDI), average energy not supplied (AENS), in distribution systems. So that each objective is calculated in this optimization process. The HBB-BC is a powerful algorithm and has a fast convergence. This algorithm using the Particle Congestion Optimization (PSO) capability improves the susceptibility of the Big Bang-Big Crunch (BB-BC) algorithm for better discovery. In addition, the HBB-BC uses a mutation operator after position updating to avoid local optimum and to explore new search areas. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is to show balanced test distribution systems. The simulation results are compared with the other solution obtained by another approach.
