dc.description.abstractDistributed Generation including renewable energies have spurred the development of Microgrids as a new alternative to electric energy system. Through Sustainability Energy Center (SEC) at the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez (UPRM) a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) platform has built, this platform allows researchers, graduate and under graduate students, and others to acquire a deeper understanding of microgrids, microgrid integration and control, and renewable energy. This thesis presents the design and implementation of the flexible and modular HIL platform focusing in energy management system (EMS) and advance metering applications. Experimental results of an EMS with configured demand response programs using meter data in a scenario with software modeled and hardware under test components is developed and presented.en_US
