This work presents a hybrid method to solve the protective devices allocation problem in electric distribution systems. Current methods only consider optimization results, without taking into account standards established by electric energy companies. These standards reflect distribution systems particularities observed by these companies. Firstly, recloser placementis determined through an optimization process, aiming to reduce reliability indices. Fuse links are placed according to heuristic rules established by electric companies. To validate the proposed methodology, a comparison with three other references from the literature is carried out, showing good results and proving the method's effectiveness.
