The real time monitoring is very important for the interconnecting microgrids. The power production status is not only grasped by watching the real time data, but also some optimization approach can be employed to improve operation mode thus dispatching power reasonably. But now a full range of monitoring of interconnecting microgrids is not implemented yet. In the present age of big data, the computing capability and storage space have been developing fast. These advanced techniques enable the large-scale data monitoring system. The big data from monitoring can be analyzed and applied into the optimization of production process. Motivated by this, a real-time data monitoring system simulation platform is developed. Specially, ThingSpeak platform is validated in our work.
