The paper addresses the problem of multi-criteria reconfiguration of distribution network with distributed generation according to the criterion of minimum power loss under normal conditions and the criterion of power supply reliability under post-emergency conditions. Efficient heuristic and multi-criteria methods are used to solve the problem including advanced ant colony algorithm for minimum loss reconfiguration of distribution network, the sorting-out algorithm of cell formation for island performing in post-emergency network, and the successive concessions method for multi-criteria decision making. Demonstration studies have been carried out for the Central Power System of Mongolia.
