© 2022 IEEE.This paper proposes an optimal coordination strategy for electric vehicles and energy storage devices in distribution grids besides the optimal allocation problem of renewable distributed generation (RDGs) and energy storage devices (ESDs). By finding the optimal number, size, and site of the RDGs and ESDs, together with the operation strategy of the ESDs and smart charging of a large number of EVs, the performance of the distribution grids will be improved. An advanced grey wolf optimization (AGWO) algorithm is used to minimize energy losses and voltage violations simultaneously in the test systems. Simulations are tested on IEEE 33 and 69 bus networks to find near-optimal solutions for the optimization problem. Based on the simulation results, the proposed optimization framework reduced the systems' losses while minimizing the voltage violations by finding the optimal control parameters of the devices.
