The paper presents a multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA), which is used to allocate the wind/battery energy storage (BES) considering the annual operating cost and annual cost of power loss incorporated with distribution system. The developed platform is implemented on 69-bus radial distribution system (RDS) considering intermittent renewable power as wind which is supported by battery energy storage to overcome the power deficit. An efficient battery management strategy is adopted to prevent overcharging/discharging of the battery. The achieved results signify the high potential of optimizing algorithm for the studied system objectives and enhancing the techno-economics of the distribution system using MOGA.
