This work proposes an optimization method for the management of a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) integrated in an islanded Micro-Grid, including Renewable Energy Systems (RESs) and generators burning fossil fuels. The optimized control of the battery State of Charge (SOC) allows to get the BESS available as much as possible to support the RES power production, hence minimizing the use of fossil fuels. The optimization of the BESS is based on load demand and RES production forecast. The Optimization Algorithm that has been adopted is the Linear Programming, using the method of the Interior Point.
