We optimized the design and operation of a low-Tc direct current superconducting quantum interference device (dc SQUID) with an integrated coupling coil of 1.5 muH inductance taking into account typical effects observed for similar devices. Numerical simulations were performed on a model including the capacitance of the Josephson junctions, thermal noise of the integrated shunt- and damping- resistors as well as a complex frequency dependent impedance of the SQUID loop originating from the integrated coils. The experimentally and numerically determined characteristics and sensitivity are in good agreement. A minimum additional coupled energy resolution of 700 (h/2p) and 250 (h/2p) was measured at a temperature of 4.2 K and 1.5 K, respectively.
