# Results Description of Simulation -- KIT.TC2.TS1 (Electrical Peak Shaving BESS Sizing)

The objective function of scenario 1 is approximately monotonic increasing. The optimization converge to the minimum cost very fast. To evaluate the optimization result of the objective function, we also simulate the system with different battery capacity. The result of our sensitivity analysis is shown in Figure 2. Obviously the best solution is C batt =0.

There are 5 components in the objective function of scenario 1. The result of sensitivity analysis of Scenario 2 is shown in Figure 4. The optimized battery size should be between [0,400] kWh. Therefore, we optimized the objective function of Scenario 2 with 0 ≤ C batt ≤ 400 to accelerate the optimization. The process is shown as Figure 5.

The result of sensitivity analysis of Scenario 3 is shown in Figure 6. The optimized battery size should be between [0,300] kWh. Therefore, we optimized the objective function of Scenario 3 with 0 ≤ C batt ≤ 300 to accelerate the optimization. The process is shown as Figure 7.
