The transportation sector is one of the most prevalent fossil fuel users worldwide. Therefore, to mitigate the impacts of carbon-dioxide emissions and reduce the use of non-environmentally friendly traditional energy resources, the electrification of the transportation system, such as the development of electric vehicles (EV), has become crucial. For impeccable EVs deployment, a well-developed charging infrastructure is required. However, the optimal placement of fast charging stations (FCSs) is a critical concern. Therefore, this article provides a functional approach for identifying the optimal location of FCSs using the east delta network (EDN). In addition, the electrical distribution network’s infrastructure is susceptible to changes in electrifying the transportation sector. Therefore, actual power loss, reactive power loss, and investment cost are three areas of consideration in deploying FCSs. Furthermore, including FCSs in the electricity distribution network increases the energy demand from the electrical grid. Therefore, this research paper recommends integrating solar-based distributed generations (SDGs) at selected locations in the distribution network, to mitigate the burden of FCSs on the system. Hence, making the system self-sustaining and reliable. In addition, the reliability of the distribution system is also analyzed after deploying the FCSs and SDGs. Furthermore, six case studies (CS) have been proposed to deploy FCSs with or without DG integration. Consequently, the active power loss went from 1014.48 kW to 829.68 kW for the CS-6.
