MAS Design

This section gives the fundamentals on how MAS can be applied to power sys­tems. It is described how existing standards, methodologies, languages, tools, architectures, and choices to make can support design specifications such as when and how should which agents interact (cooperate and/or compete) to successfully meet their design objectives. The following items are discussed:

• MAS design methodologies and their characteristics and protocols.

• Standards that MAS should adhere for power systems control.

• Communication protocols between agents.

• Types of services in agent platforms.

• Reactive and intelligent agents structures.

• Use of learning techniques for MAS.

• MAS for planning actions.

• MAS development platforms to facilitate MAS design and prototyping.
