Abstract: The prime motto of the electrical power system is to provide the good and high quality power to the consumers. As the life in the society is expanding hugely, hence the need of the electrical power is additionally expanding suggestively. In this manner expanding the power generation as well as beating the significant issues in the electrical distribution system has turned into a test. The strange conditions can’t be normal however when happened; the recuperation ought to be made as quickly as time permits. In this work, a modern artificial intelligence based algorithm is implemented for the reconfiguration of an electrical radial distribution network. This algorithm helps to bring down the active power loss and intensify the voltage profile of the network. This paper has proposed a nature-based guided metaheuristic Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA). WOA is motivated by the smart foraging approach of the humpback whales. To ratify the efficiency of the proposed approach, WOA is successfully simulated on IEEE standard 69 bus and 119 bus system.
