The distributed generators in the radial distribution network are to improve the Grid performance and its efficiency. These Distributed Generators control the PV bus; it is converted as a remote controlled PVQ bus. This PVQ bus reduces the power loss and reactive power. Initially, the distributed generators were placed in the system using mathematical modelling or the optimization. This approach improves the efficiency but it has no effect in loss minimization. To minimize the loss the reconfigured network with Genetic algorithm based Distributed generator placement proposed as existing work. This approach minimizes the loss effectively; but the genetic algorithm takes more time for DG placement. Hence, in this, the network reconfiguration is performed using a modified Satin bower bird algorithm after DG placement and DG sizing. Initially, the sensitive analysis applied the load flow analysis to identify the optimal placement for the distributed generator. Then, the modified Satin Bowerbird (SBO) used for the network reconfiguration. This approach minimizes the loss of effectively by combining the network reconfiguration process. The proposed modified SBO-based network reconfiguration implemented on standard bus systems 33 and 69 using MATLAB R2021b version under Windows 10 environment. The proposed approach compared with the existing work in terms of real power loss and loss reduction.
