  • Rapid growth of electric vehicles (EVs) has necessitated the devolvement of sustainable and easily accessible charging stations. Transport sector electrification and increased popularity of EVs make researcher to search for charging stations. In this paper, a new methodology regarding electric vehicle charging spot is proposed. In the study, allocation of the parking lot and capacitor is suggested for congestion management along with reactive power compensation. To this end, sensitivity analysis is performed by evaluating the inverse Jacobian matrix from the power flow studies. In order to optimally determine the size of parking lot, biogeography-based optimization (BBO) technique is adopted. The effectiveness of the anticipated technique is tested on adapted IEEE 34-bus distribution network. The outcome attained by BBO technique is equated with particle swarm optimization.
