The essential attributes of interruptions in the power supply of the consumers are the frequency and the duration. While the durations are predominantly influenced by the electrical network structure and the existent automations, the frequency is powerfully influenced by the functioning schema adopted. For electrical distribution networks working in a radial configuration, the frequency of interruptions may be minimised by the suitable choice of the loop opening points. The authors propose an original method for the minimization of the system average interruption frequency index (SAIFI) in power supply, which contains besides the technological restrictions also the restriction regarding the resistive power loss.
