Distributed renewable resources are one of the major technological inclinations that play a pivotal role in the future green power system. In this context, high penetration of Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PIEVs) may bring many challenges for the smart grid. PIEVs’ unscheduled utilization will cause technical issues for both generation side and demand side. High penetration of PIEVs may lead to reliability deterioration of smart distribution network. In this paper, firstly a PIEV owner behavior model is introduced. The output of this model is the hourly demand of PIEVs per day. Secondly, a comprehensive reliability-based objective function is proposed to allocate these modeled PIEVs in smart distribution network. Finally, IEEE RBTS bus 2 is used for implementing allocation algorithm utilizing both genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization
