The placement problem of distributed generators (DGs) in distribution networks becomes much more complicated in the case of using the DGs with renewable energy resources. Due to several reasons such as, their intermittent output powers, the interactions between DGs and the rest of the distribution network, and considering other involved uncertainties are very vital. This paper develops a new approach for optimal placement of wind energy based DGs (WDGs) in which all of such influences are carefully handled. The proposed method considers the time variations of dynamic nodal demands, nodal voltage magnitudes, and wind speed in the WDG placement process simultaneously. Thereby, an accurate dynamic model of the active and reactive powers injected by the WDG to the system is employed in which the interactions between the WDG and the distribution network are well regarded. Finally, simulation results are given to show the capability of the proposed approach. As it is demonstrated in the numerical analysis of the radial 33-bus distribution test network, the proposed placement algorithm can efficiently determine the optimal bus for connecting the WDG and is suitable for real applications.
