This paper studies how the communication network between proactive
consumers affects the power utilization and fairness in a simplified
direct-current microgrid model, composed of three coupled layers:
physical (an electric circuit that represents a microgrid),
communication (a peer-to-peer network within the microgrid), and
regulatory (individual decision strategies). Our results show that, for
optimal power utilization and fairness, a global knowledge about the
system is needed, demonstrating the importance of a microgrid aggregator
to inform about the power consumption for different time periods.
