A mathematical model of the electric thermal storage (ETS) system is developed and integrated into an energy management system (EMS) for isolated microgrids, in which the problem is divided into unit commitment and optimal power flow subproblems, to dispatch fossil-fuel-based generators, energy storage systems, and ETS charging. This model can encompass an entire micro-grid system.
