Nowadays, population growth and the electrical load demand on the one hand and rising cost of energy generation on the other hand have led to raises reducing the losses in distribution networks as a serious challenge. According to studies, smart grid is posed as the most important applicable solution to eliminate these problems. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of communication and information technologies and new control capabilities in smart grids for reducing distribution network dissipations. In this study, a new formulation and an optimal load flow algorithm are used to reduce losses in the smart distribution network. Optimal load flow for a 69-bus IEEE network as well as the installation of the smart network facilities are implemented in the MATLAB and GAMS software and the results show that distribution network losses are greatly reduced.
