Multi-Agent Negotiation Models for Power System Applications
Motivated by the need to coordinate decisions among competing power system stakeholders, we describe multi-agent negotiation systems to perform negotiated decision-making. The negotiation theory is reviewed. Two multi-agent negotiation models are described. A multi-agent negotiation system is implemented and some illustrative power industry applications are presented.
