Can I say "it has deductiely reasoned that A is better than B." ?
Here is the script:
"In the first step of this study, using information such as efficiency, self-discharge rate, capacity of different energy storage technologies; it has deductively reasoned that batteries are the best energy storage technologies to be implemented in active distribution networks. "
I want to say that by taking into account different decision factors such as A, B, C, and etc. we decided that technology blah is the best among all other technologies. The reason I insist on emphasizing "deductive reasoning" is that in other parts of our study we used computer simulation to form an opinion. But, in the first step we only used facts and available information in the literature to reach a judgement about the most the suitable energy storage technology.
