This paper deals with an energy management strategy for a microgrid using artificial intelligent techniques. The proposed Energy management strategy aims in the maximum utilization of renewable energy sources considering the load demand, future availability of renewable energy sources and state of charge of the battery. An Artificial neural network model is developed for the forecasting of load and generation through renewable energies at 24- h- ahead with a time interval of 30 minutes. The efficiency of the microgrid strongly depends on the Battery scheduling process, which cannot be obtained through conventional optimization formulation. In this paper, A Fuzzy logic decision making system is used for the battery scheduling process which schedules the battery with the rate of charge and discharge. It also limits the battery from over charging and deep discharge and thus helps in increasing the lifespan of the battery. The Proposed model is simulated using the tools in Matlab/Similink environment and the results are found to be better than the literature models.
