741 Basic Goals for VGP Control

An optimization minimizes a cost (or maximizes a benefit) function. In the case of the VGP, the cost function is the financial cost of satisfying the electrical and thermal loads of a building or group of buildings from the viewpoint of the VGP owner/operator. The required goals listed in the following sections are those needed by a VGP that is capable of aggregating DG units.
