Harmonic penetration can be problematic by the growing interconnection of Wind Turbines (WTs) in distribution networks. Since the active power outputs of WTs and loads in the distribution system have uncertainties, the optimal WT penetration level problem can be considered to have a stochastic nature. In this study, this problem is taken into account in the stochastic optimization method with the consideration of uncertainties in wind speed and distribution network load profile. Chance constraint programming is taken into account in the determination of optimal WT penetration levels by applying the Genetic Algorithm (GA) along with Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS). The harmonic power flow analysis based on the decoupled harmonic load flow approach is employed in the distorted distribution network. Chance constraints are considered for the harmonic issues such as the Total Harmonic Distortion of Voltage (VTHD), Individual Harmonic Distortion of Voltage (VIHDh), and Root Mean Square of Voltage (VRMS).
