Due to the rising interest in sustainable transportation efforts, the adoption rate of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in the transportation sector has grown significantly. However, a rise in PEVs will create an additional load demand on the electrical distribution system (EDS), which leads to increased system power loss and bus voltage deviation. Hence, the additional load must be balanced through auxiliary generation units known as distributed generation (DG) which can be integrated into EDS that minimize system power loss and bus voltage deviation. In the present study, Harris hawk’s optimization technique has been implemented for optimal DG allocation in the presence of PEVs. To crisscross the feasibility of the technique, a daily load curve has been considered with various load demand patterns in a day of 24 h. The optimization technique has been implemented and tested on practical 28 – bus EDS which is in Kakdwip, West Bengal, India.
