Abstract

This paper presents the design, implementation and test of hardware in the loop simulation architecture for integration of Smart Buildings and distributed energy resources in Micro Grids. The rationale for this work is the integration of off-the-shelves devices in a HIL simulation setup within software development. The architecture and preliminary results are presented, together with a case study for integrating flexible units, such as a space heating system and Electric Vehicles in a Smart Building equipped with local solar energy production.

Keywords: HIL simulation; smart grids; smart buildings; renewable energy integration
