This paper proposes an optimization-based decision support strategy to enhance the management of the distributed energy sources of an islanded microgrid. The solutions provided by the optimization algorithm are compared with the current strategy, already implemented in a real site microgrid on Lencois' island/Brazil. Significant economic and energy savings are achieved when the optimal management of the diesel generator is performed.
