One of the most important methods in loss reduction and controlling the voltages of distribution systems is the utilization of the fixed and switched capacitors. To do this, real modelling of the system in actual operational conditions including unbalanced or balanced loading and for actual feeder structure, ie, radial/meshed configuration, are required. In this paper, a new technique for finding the optimal values of the fixed and switched capacitors in the distribution networks with above properties based on the differential evolution algorithm is presented. For this purpose, the modelling of the loads at different load levels are simulated with low voltage and medium voltage capacitors that are available on the market. Regarding the above factors in addition to the various parameters in the optimization problem, DE Algorithm is used to find the best and real optimal network with the best rate for the capacitors
