Single line diagram of a $$4$$-bus single source distribution system is shown below. Branches $${e_1},\,\,$$ $${e_2},\,\,$$ $${e_3}\,\,$$ and $${e_4}\,\,$$ have equal impedences. The load current values indicated in the figure are in per unit.

Distribution Company's policy requires radial system operation with minimum loss. This can be achieved by opening of the branch
