Distributed Energy Management Of Smart Micro-Grids Using IOT And Blockchain
In this paper, distributed energy management of a micro-grid is implemented using IOT and block chain. Here we consider three levels of micro-grids for distributed energy management. First, using IOT the environment values are sensed through Arduino and given to the IOT platform. The coordinated operation is done in the IOT platform and the resulting signals are used for implementation of distributed energy management in network of micro-grids. An IOT based smart micro-grid testbed is implemented with three groups of microgrid each group with three micro-grids. Each microgrid consists of a wind, two solar, battery and load. After establishing smart micro-grid test bed, Block chain is implemented to reduce the transaction expences byremoving the middleman.
