Using 'Fuzzy logic' to Optimize Hybrid Solar/Battery Systems

(Feb.25, 2015)  Sizing techniques play an essential role in the design of renewable energies for hybrid energy systems, and now, a team of researchers is using a "fuzzy logic" algorithm to determine optimal sizing for hybrid photovoltaic panel/battery systems.

How did fuzzy logic help a group of researchers in Tunisia and Algeria create an ideal photovoltaic system that obeys the supply-and-demand principle and its delicate balance?
