Abstract: This study proposes and develops a simulator for the prediction and control experiments of a microgrid system. A microgrid is a next-generation intelligent power grid that optimizes energy efficiency by combining information technology with a power grid. The microgrid needs to efficiently distribute power to both producers and consumers and therefore, requires an optimized grid control system that predicts power generation and consumption. The existing power distribution simulator is inconvenient to use if the user does not possess electrical knowledge. In this paper, we propose a simulator for the power prediction and control experiments of a microgrid. The proposed system uses past data or scenarios rather than electrical knowledge for the simulation. In addition, it provides an intuitive graphical interface that is developed as a web page considering user accessibility requirements. Finally, the monitoring function is explained by way of examples in order to confirm the simulation results.
