Areas missing wide electricity grid deployment require set-up of local and small scale grids (nano-grids) covering individual or group of houses. Such systems require a performance/cost optimisation. A simulation has been developed to evaluate management algorithms. A 15 % optimisation through the use of simple predictive algorithms is demonstrated.
