#### 2.1. Energy Management Using Deterministic and Chance-Constrained Optimization Approaches

#### 2.2. Energy Management Using Heuristic Optimization Approaches

- A scenario is given to allow MG operators to include the actions of energy trading with the main grid. This depends on ToU, CPP, and the conditions of trading to achieve multiple objectives, including the minimization of production and fuel cost along with the maximization of sales revenue.
- An efficient algorithm is proposed to perform optimal energy management, and an objective function is formulated as a multi-objective scheduling problem, (i.e., MG is considered for two cases: standalone and grid-connected operation modes).
- The mechanism of CPP is also incorporated because it influences more power supply during critical pricing hours announced by the utility. This pricing mechanism also helps in reducing cost during other hours of the day.
- We also considered microturbines (MTs), WTs, PVs, and diesel generators as dispatchable DGs and ESSs.

## 3. Problem Formulation

#### 3.1. Formulation of Objective Function

- 24-h ToU or CPP hourly load demand forecast
- 24-h WT energy forecast
- 24-h MT energy forecast
- 24-h PV energy forecast
- The utility price forecast or a pre-specified utility price.

#### 3.1.1. Case I: Standalone Mode

#### 3.1.2. Case II: Grid-Connected Mode

#### 3.1.3. Formulation of the Multi-Objective Scheduling Problem

## 4. Proposed System Model

#### 4.1. Jaya Algorithm

- Step 1
- Obtain the hourly power rating of the individual dispatchable DGs, the hourly selling and buying prices (i.e., ToU and CPP), load demand, P are taken as 30 individual solutions, n as 6 decision variables (i.e., the dispatchable DGs), and 125 iterations are used as the stopping criterion.
- Step 2
- Generate the initial population randomly within the range of values that corresponds to $h\left(x\right)$ (i.e., using the upper and lower limits). After the population generation, a counter is set to the maximum iterations.
- Step 3
- Step 4
- Update the population based upon the fitness comparison at the end of each iteration. Perform a local search to ascertain if the solution satisfies the objective constraints. Apply mutation strategy to maintain and introduce diversity in the population. In addition, a global solution is obtained if the new solution gives a better objective value.
- Step 5
- Transform the updated population into binary that denotes the ON and OFF status of dispatchable DGs.
- Step 6
- Run the EMS for each individual and compute their corresponding objective values at each iteration.
- Step 7
- Consider the energy storage if it is empty, then turn ON standby dispatchable DG, otherwise turn OFF dispatchable DG.
- Step 8
- If the load demand at a particular time slot t is high and the utility price is also high, then the power stored is dispatched to satisfy the load demand at that particular time slot t, a control signal is sent to other dispatchable DGs, and EMS memory is updated. This process continues for 24-h.
- Step 9
- Identify the ideal and worst solutions and modify the solution using Equation (14) and execute the dispatch after considering the modified solution, obtain the objective value for each individual solution, and update the solution if it provides the ideal solution.
- Step 10
- Stop execution if termination criteria are reached.
