Measured weather and power dataset for management of an island and grid-connected microgrid
This dataset presents the weather and power data files from renewable sources used to solve the economic dispatch problem of a microgrid that operates in the isolated and grid-connected modes. Methodology is used in the research article “Management of an island and grid-connected microgrid using hybrid economic model predictive control with weather data”. Automatic stations located in the Brazil's south and northeast furnished the weather data (irradiance, temperature, and wind speed). A script generates files containing weather forecasts from one-day ahead using the geographical coordinates of the weather stations. A microgrid management algorithm uses these forecasts to solve the optimal economic dispatch problem. There are five data files for each weather station: i) Weather database downloaded from the website of the National Meteorological Institute, ii) Weather research and forecasting (WRF) database derived from the raw data generated by the weather research and forecasting model, iii) Weather database that joins the forecasted data with the measured data in a single file, iv) Files containing only the temperature, irradiance, and wind speed data, v) Files containing the measured and forecasted wind and solar power.
