This paper is concerned with bi-level joint planning model of distributed generation (DG) and electric vehicle charging station (EVCS) siting and sizing under active management (AM) mode. Firstly, the joint planning model including DG and EVCS is established by taking the lowest annual comprehensive cost as the upper level objective. Then, the lower level model optimizes DG output curtailment by taking the uncertainty of load, EVCS charging load, and the intermittent DG output of wind farm and photovoltaic generator into account. According to the bidirectional interaction of upper and lower levels, the bi-level planning model is optimized by biogeography-based optimization (BBO) and primal-dual interior point method (PDIPM) respectively. Finally, simulation is operated on the revised IEEE-33 nodes distribution network, and simulation results show that the joint planning of DG and EVCS can obtain better planning scheme.
