In this paper, an optimal energy management system (EMS) for grid-connected microgrid is proposed. The gridconnected microgrid system comprises of photovoltaic (PV) panel, and battery as an energy storage unit. The optimal EMS is aimed to minimize the total operating cost of grid-connected microgrid for academic building. The feedforward neural network with improved salp swarm alogrithm based on weight factor is used to determine the 24-hours ahead data forecasting of load demand and PV power, while improved salp swarm alogrithm based on weight factor (WSSA) is used to perform the day-ahead optimal scheduling to control the power flow between PV, energy storage unit, load and main grid. The proposed microgrid EMS (MGEMS) is simulated using MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation result shows the effectiveness and validity of presented EMS with academic load.
