This paper presents the probabilistic reliability methodology in the radial distribution system. Reliability is a key aspect of power system design and planning. Reliability indices are calculated at each load points by analytical method. The reconfiguration is aimed at maximizing the reliability of power supplied to the customers. Binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) is used to determine optimal configuration of switches in network in order to maximize reliability at load points. The proposed methodology applied on IEEE-9 bus system.
