One of the difficulties in distribution networks is unbalanced load that makes undesired troubles and increases losses. Nowadays, rate of unbalanced load is known as one of the indexes of electric energy quality. Factors that make network unbalanced are heterogeneous and uninformed distribution of single-phase consumers between feeder's phase and also random and unsimultaneous behavior of single-phase consumers. Also, load balancing is possible by transferring consumers between phases, but random behavior of consumers says final word and makes network unbalanced. In this article, the latter method is selected , thus based on present consumption and suggested algorithm, consumers will be classified and distributed among phases by the means of suggested device respectively, so that the network will be balanced.
