The behind-the-meter integration of the distributed energy sources and the energy storage systems (ESSs) presents one of the key solutions for the 21st century energy and power challenges. A comprehensive design and development procedure, which integrates the energy management strategy, the power flow control and the sizing techniques, into the system design can provide valuable insights and guidelines for the system operation and implementation. Most of the analyses and tools already presented in the literature do not consider a suitable design and development procedure for ESSs. In this paper, a novel design and development procedure suitable for integrated residential ESSs is presented. The procedure is composed of four stages: (i) Imports Parameters, (ii) Inputs Processing, (iii) Process Simulation and (iv) Design and Sizing Guide. The stages and the capabilities of the proposed design and development procedure are demonstrated through developed design algorithms based on the proposed procedure, looking at a real energy system in the UK.
