uGIM is a microgrid intelligent management software that can represent individual microgrid’s players using a multi-agent approach. This dataset has data regarding a week (from 03-06-2019 to 09-06-2019) of a microgrid with five players (all offices). All agents have consumption and generation data and are able to participate in peer-to-peer transactions using an auction model. The dataset presents the data regarding: energy values (consumption and generation); energy forecasting (consumption and generation); auction participations; and peer-to-peer transactions. The transactions are analysed and classified by type: best choice; wrong sale; wrong purchase; sold too much; and bought too much.

All five agents are able to sell energy from the peer-to-peer auction. However, only four can buy energy: L.1; L.2; L.3; and R.2. Agent Z.0 is configured only to sell energy. All agents have photovoltaic generation where L.1, L.2, L.3; and R.2 have 1 kW each and Z.0 has 6 kW.

In uGIM, agents are deployed in the player’s facilities using single-board computers. All the data in this dataset is read and stored in five single-board computers. Each agent integrates several resources. In this microgrid deployment, all resources use TCP/IP communication. However, uGIM supports more protocols, such as Modbus/RTU and Modbus/TCP.
