Some of these obstacles such as voltage sags, blackouts, overloads and old grids are part of economical issue and other factors especially carbon emissions which contribute to the environmental problem [6,7] . Thus, considering both economical and environmental interests, application of smart grid will be essential for near future [8–14] .
