Around the world, smart grids are being developed to reduce the electric waste and to prevent blackouts. Simulating microgrid, an eco-district or virtual power plant, is challenging, considering their different behaviors and structures. Each one varies according to several aspects: social, economic, energetic, mobility, and the well-being of its inhabitants. This paper proposes a demand-side management of a microgrid with a systemic approach, the model is based on the JADE framework and generic data from the literature. This paper focuses on the ability of microgrid to regulate its consumption with flexibility.
