The controller you use in your HOMER model determines how to dispatch the various generation sources to meet the load. HOMER has three built-in dispatch strategies: Cycle Charging, Load Following, and Generator Order. You can also choose to write your own dispatch in MATLAB and link it to HOMER using the MATLAB Link.
