A new Markov-chain-based energy storage model to evaluate power supply availability of photovoltaic generation is proposed. Since photovoltaic resources have high output variability subject to weather conditions, energy storage can be added in order to increase the availability of photovoltaic generation. Although adding energy storage is a promising strategy to improve the availability of photovoltaic generation, energy storage sizing to meet a certain availability must be taken into account…
