Abstract

Because of the increasing growth of Electric Vehicle (EV) in India, more electricity is required to power such vehicles. It is also gaining popularity because of its low maintenance, improved performance, and zero carbon impact. As the usage of electric vehicles grows, the distribution system's performance is impacted. As an outcome, the reliability of the distribution system (DS) is dependent on the position of the electric vehicle charging station (EVCS). The fundamental difficulty is the deterioration of the DS due to an incorrect EVCS location. The DS is linked to the charging station and works with the distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM) to minimize the impact of the EVCS. A new nature-inspired Bald Eagle Search Algorithm (BESA) based optimization technique was utilized to find the optimal allocation of DSTATCOM and EVCS in the DS. The proposed strategy for mitigating the real power loss has been tested on practical Indian 28-bus and 108-bus distribution networks. Power loss reduction optimizes the system's net savings, voltage stability, and bus voltage. The test case findings show that the BESA-based optimization is more accurate regarding power loss mitigation, bus voltage enhancement, and annual net saving improvement than the BA-based optimization in the DS.
