The goal of the research reported here was to develop a generic integrated decision support tool for concurrent optimal selection, sizing, and operation scheduling of grid-connected or off-grid multi-generation/multi-storage distributed generation and storage (DGS) systems with respect to the dynamics of historical/projected periodical weather data, electricity price, DGS system cost, DGS aging, and the major critical design and operational parameters.
