This paper presents the method of reconfiguring the distribution network using cuckoo search algorithm (CS). In which, to improve the efficiency of CS algorithms, the local search technique is proposed to exploit the search space around the best configuration of the population during the search process. The objective function of the problem is reduction of power loss of the distribution system. The evaluated results on the distribution network with 33 nodes has showed that the enhanced cuckoo search (ECS) method outperforms compared to the reconfiguration method based on conventional CS algorithms on the solution quality obtained, the number of convergence iteration.
