Design and control of microgrids require a wide range of considerations and information. A main issue is the sizing and the operation strategy of storages with respect to the huge variation of several system conditions. Besides the grid coupling conditions the power profile is a key feature that has to be included in the considerations. Especially in the industrial environment the consumption of the loads is highly fluctuating and the application of standard load profiles (which use average values) is impracticable. This paper presents a stochastic ap- proach in order to analyze the power curves. Therefor common methods for modeling of stochastic variables are compared and assessed by their pros and cons related to the presented field of application. The focus of this paper is not a prediction but a visualization and stochastics-based statements, which help to assess power curves and to dimension components of microgrids.
