A Multi-agent Approach to Power System Restoration
This chapter proposes a multi-agent approach to power system restoration. The proposed system consists of a number of bus agents (BAGs) and a single facilitator agent (FAG). The BAG is developed to decide a suboptimal target configuration after a fault occurrence by interacting with other BAGs based on only locally available information, while the FAG is to act as a manager in the decision process. The interaction of several simple agents leads to a dynamic system, allowing efficient approximation of a solution. Simulation results have demonstrated that this method is able to reach sub-optimal target configurations, which are favorably compared with those obtained by a mathematical programming approach.
