The imperfection of theoretical and methodological approaches to regulate the jump process transition when combining differentiated energy resources is a pressing issue. The goal of this paper is to develop a theory and a method to regulate the integration-balancing processes of combining diversified resources. The concept of combining integration and balancing models has been substantiated by methods of transforming multidimensional space and approximating generalized functions that represent jump-like processes. Theoretical and operational-regulatory models of economic sustainability have been developed, substantiating new concepts, patterns, properties, dependencies and indicators of the dynamics of the processes of combination; the optimality conditions for the number of approximations of generalized functions, interpreting the effects of control functions of combining resources, are determined. New methods for solving problems have been developed: the organization of the energy technology complex of facilities for enhanced resource diversification and the Center for Sustainability, improving the quality of managing dynamic processes in terms of combining and diversifying resources.

In this manuscript, authors seek to develop a theory and a method to regulate the integration-balancing processes of combining diversified resources. Although the article falls within the thematic area of the journal, there are major issues to be solved by the authors:

  1. Abstract- it is far too general, without focusing on the essential elements of the research.
  2. Section 1. Introduction- authors should reorganize this section and briefly describe the overarching scientific topic of the paper, provide background information on that scientific question (including references) and why this question is of interest, contain a clearly-stated scientific question and briefly summarize the conclusions drawn from the authors’ research.
  3. Section 2. Literature review- authors should also reorganize this section in order to describe the rationale for the models of combining diversified resource and add supplementary relevant reference regarding the topic of the manuscript (especially from MDPI journals).
  4. Sections 4. Models of Regulation of Economic Sustainability- please explain why the authors choose Ramsey-Cass-Koopmans model rather than Solow model, which in my opinion it’s more appropriate.
  5. Moderate English changes are required, especially in Section 6. Conclusion. Additionally, authors should present future research avenues.

I aam afraid to say that this paper failed to explain to me what is the purpose and goal of the research. Aftrer 250 lines I still had no real clue.

Many sentences are unclear.

to start with the title:

Modeling regulation of economic sustainability in energy systems with diversified resources

did you model regulation? what is regulation is that regulation by governments or do you mean technical control of systems in a measurement and control sense?

what is economic sustainability? is that one of the three pillars of sustainability People, Planet Profit?

what do you mean with diversified resources? do you mean multi input sources into the energy system?

resource is not the same as source

first line of the abstract:The imperfection of theoretical and methodological approaches to regulate the jump process transition when combining differentiated energy resources is a pressing issue. 

 

now you are not regulating the system but the jump process transition 

do you mean energy transition? the change from fossil to renawable?

why is this a jump process? Is this only a jump process when combining differentiated (meaning different??) energy (re)sources?

why is this a pressing issue and for whom?

These are just the first to lines. I could go on like this with at least the next 250 lines, but I won't

It is a pitty, I had the impression the article would contain  important findings on topics I am interested in (and that still can be the case but I could not distill that from this paper and the way it is written).
