MultiGood MicroGrid Lab (MG2Lab)

The MultiGood MicroGridLAB (MG2lab) is an experimental Low Voltage rig operating at the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano since 2018.
The MG2lab includes programmable and non-programmable generation units (solar PV plants, natural gas fired combined heat and power engine), different types of storages (electrochemical batteries, bi-directional power-to-gas system and thermal storages) and various types of loads featuring MultiGood MicroGrids (heating and cooling, desalination, electric bikes and electric cars).
This experimental setup which can operate both on-grid and off-grid is an effective testbench for developing innovative Energy Management Systems, implementing Artificial Intelligent tools in the MG management and load/RES forecast, testing innovative components and integrating Electric Vehicles with bidirectional power flows (from grid to vehicle and vehicle to grid).
Core mission of the MG2lab is the development and on-field testing of predictive optimization algorithms for optimal planning of multi-good energy systems, to ensure their secure and efficient operation also when featuring a high penetration of renewable generators.
