The rapid depletion of energy resources available today; In addition to this consumption rate, environmental pollution threatens human life and attracts the attention of the whole world and efforts are being made on alternative energy sources. Due to the developing technologies, the transportation sector has become quite dynamic, this growth brought about some problems; as both the air pollution caused by CO2 emissions and the continuous increase in energy consumption continue to affect people's daily lives significantly. Continuous increase in the number of electric vehicles in the transportation; Hill increase the importance of the installation of the car park day by day. The increase in power demanded from the low voltage network in parallel with the number of electric vehicles; This means that the distribution network dynamics will change considerably over time. In this paper, the optimization problem and also the modelling interested are given with their numerical values and parameters. By applying heuristic algorithms for similar electrical optimizations, the application of the selected Genetic Algorithm method to the problem is explained. An example parking scenario was established, the method followed is explained in detail and the result values are given.
