This paper suggests a new energy management system for a grid-connected microgrid with various renewable energy resources including a photovoltaic (PV), wind turbine (WT), fuel cell (FC), micro turbine (MT) and battery energy storage system (BESS). For the PV system operating in the microgrid, an innovative mathematical modelling is presented. In this model, the effect of various irradiances in different days and seasons on day-ahead scheduling of the microgrid is evaluated. Moreover, the uncertainties in the output power of the PV system and WT, load demand forecasting error and grid bid changes for the optimal energy management of microgrid are modelled via a scenario-based technique. To cope with the optimal energy management of the grid-connected microgrid with a high degree of uncertainties, a modified bat algorithm (MBA) is employed. The proposed algorithm leads to a faster computation of the best location and more accurate result in comparison with the genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm. The simulation results demonstrate that the use of practical PV model in a real environment improve the accuracy of the energy management system and decreases the total operational cost of the grid-connected microgrid.
