With the emergence of new technologies in power generation methods, microgrids have become a complex system with multiple generators of different types. Sizing of these generators for an economical microgrid has multi-fold challenges. The primary aspect of sizing formulation is incorporating the effects of short-term decision mechanisms, unit commitment and demand side management which significantly impacts the operational cost of the microgrid. Accounting the degradation of the microgridunits and lifetime based on performance are the other important issues that need to be contemplated in sizing methodology. Also, microgrids are associated with uncertainties in load and power generated by renewable sources. Hence, the microgrid sizing problem is a large-scale stochastic optimization problem. In this manuscript, a unified optimization framework for the sizing of an islanded microgrid with features that can simultaneously handle all the challenging issues mentioned above is proposed. Results obtained using the proposed method are compared with the state-of-the-art sizing algorithm.
