In this paper, a methodology to perform the optimal unit sizing for Distributed Energy Resources (DRE) in MicroGid (MG), is developed. Based on a genetic algorithm, one optimal sizing method was developed to calculate the optimum system configuration that can achieve the customers required loss of power supply probability (LPSP) with a minimum COE. The proposed method results are validated for single source DG and hybrid DG with results obtained from HOMER for the same systems.
