This paper presents an optimization approach for planning of renewable generation in energy distribution systems. The considered generations are based on wind turbines and photovoltaic panels. The objective is to determine the optimal placement of the renewable distributed generation aiming at minimizing the investment and operational costs in a long term planning. The proposed approach represents the stochastic behavior of the renewable resources by handling historical data to determine the wind and photovoltaic capacity factors. The method for obtaining such factors considers the daily load periods, which allows representing the availability of the energetic resources in different periods. The optimization method is based on the bioinspired metaheuristic known as artificial immune system. Two systems of the literature and practical wind and solar data from Brazil are used to assess the proposed approach.
