The immune system is the one of the adaptive biological system whose functions are to identify and to eliminate foreign material. In this paper we propose general algorithm derived primarily to perform optimization tasks emphasizing combinatorial optimization. It is based on immune model to optimally design spatially closed electrical distribution networks. Some practical examples were used to investigate the performance of the immune algorithm. The results of the simulations represent that the immune algorithm shows good performance for such hard combinatorial optimization problem.
