This paper focusses on the design and the optimization of a photovoltaic system that includes battery storage. We have developed an optimization method that takes into account Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Loss of Power Supply Probability (LPSP). Batteries’ lifespan is considered at the design phase especially for replacement. This approach is rather recent in the literature and brings a significant contribution. For the improvement of the management system, other aspects such as the inclination of the panels as well as batteries charge or discharge are considered. Finally, the methodology will help developers and installers to design appropriate renewable systems, particularly in standalone areas.
