In HOMER, the term "component" refers to any part of the system that generates, stores or transfers electric or thermal energy, and whose size or quantity is an optimization variable.

Photovoltaic panels, diesel generators and wind turbines are examples of components. Less obvious are things like converters, electrolyzers and the utility grid.
