In HOMER, the term "Component" refers to any part of the system that generates, stores, or transfers electric or thermal energy, and the size or quantity of which 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.
