This paper presents a new approach for radial distributed network planning with using ACO algorithm. Ant colony optimization algorithm (ACO) is one of the best methods for optimization in difficult discrete problems. The new algorithm determines the optimal configuration of network and voltage level of each section of the feeders and calculates the optimum rating of the transformers and the size of each section of the feeders. This algorithm applied to a real 23-feeder radial test network ofdoaj:de1aef1786dd4beda5fab58a7cb2e31f fatcat:egvme7o2qzgbzjt6inlw5eafli
