Energy management systems are one of the most important components in the operation of an electric microgrid. They are responsible for ensuring the supervision of the electrical system, as well as the coordination and reliability of all loads and distributed energy resources in order for the microgrid to be operated as a unified entity. Because of that, an energy management system should be fast enough at processing data and defining control action to guarantee the correct performance of the

The proposed energy management device coordinates the distributed energy resources and loads in a residential-scale islanded microgrid, in accordance with a rule-based energy management strategy that ensures reliable and safe operation of the battery-based energy storage system. A hardware-int-he-loop test was performed with a real-time simulation platform to show the operation of the electronic device
