uGIM is a microgrid intelligent management platform that can represent individual end-users using a multi-agent approach. This dataset has data regarding two weeks (May 13th to May 18th, 2019, and September 30th to October 6th, 2019) where auction-based peer-to-peer transactions were performed in a real microgrid.

The data was collected by uGIM agents and auctions were executed every hour. The hour-ahead auctions are performed by the sellers in a fully distributed approach. To create this dataset two NanoPi M1 Plus (with 1.2 GHz quad-core CPUs and 1 GB of RAM running the Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS operating system), and three Raspberry Pi Model B+ (with 1.4 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPUs and GB of RAM running the Raspberry Pi OS operating system) were used.
