    Abstract: The distribution networks of African cities are for the most part in degradation of the required quality due to the exponential evolution of the loads due to demography and industry. In this paper, a hybrid approach based on an analytic-metaheuristic method called (BVSI-GA) developed in the MATLAB environment was used to dimension and position in a... Show More
