Abstract


  • In this paper, a multiagent-based voltage and reactive

    power control in the case of a multiple contingency is presented.

    Incorporating the agent-based autonomous feature to the intelligence

    of the remote terminal units, the present power system

    control structure can be used to help in preventing system voltage

    collapse during catastrophic disturbances. The control algorithm

    is based on a decentralized architecture of intelligent agents and

    the determination of a local zone that can carry out quick countermeasures

    in a decentralized manner as a multiagent system

    (MAS) during an emergency situation. An adaptive determination

    of the local zones undergoing voltage collapse has been developed

    based on the electrical distances among the generators and loads.

    Once assigned, the elements of the Jacobian matrix can be used

    to determine the optimum actions that need to be carried out at

    each power system element (such as increasing the voltages of

    generators and load shedding) within the assigned local zone. The

    contract net protocol is used for agent interactions. Simulation

    results using the IEEE-57 bus system show that the proposed

    method can act quickly to respond to emergency conditions to

    ensure that voltage collapse can be avoided.
