Multi-agent based control of smart grid
Controlling the power system has become challenging task with increasing power demands with limited resources. Therefore, energy utilities are looking advanced techniques for controlling their grid. In this context, multi-agent systems (MASs) are popular due to their inherent benefits. In the first section of this chapter, the functionality of MAS is presented with inherent advantages. Then, the applications of MAS are discussed in four aspects of power systems including power-system restoration, electricity trading, optimization, and smart-grid control. At the end two case studies, MAS in a microgrid and application of MAS in smart-grid transmission/generation have presented.
