In the upcoming years, an opportunity for a wide range of electricity management solutions arises, thus several researchers have focused their efforts on studying and analyzing various subjects related to the operation of microgrids, smart grids, Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), responsive demand, among others. On the other side, especially at engineering courses, these topics are primarily covered from a theoretical standpoint only, without a complementary laboratory approach. To this end, this work…
