A multi-agent approach for decentralized voltage regulation by considering distributed generators

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Distributed generators (DGs) are considered as significant

    components tomodern micro grids in recent years because they can provide

    instant and renewable electric power to consumers without using transmission

    networks. However, the use of DGs may affect the use of voltage

    regulators in amicro grid because theDGs are usually privately owned and

    cannot be centrally managed. In this paper, an innovativemulti-agent approach

    is proposed to perform automatic and decentralized controls of distributed

    electric components in micro grids. Autonomous software agents

    are employed to make local optimal decisions on voltage regulation by

    considering multiple objectives and local information; and agent-based

    communication and collaboration are employed toward a global voltage

    regulation through dynamic task allocation. The proposed approach contains

    three layers for representing the micro grid, the multi-agent system

    and the human-computer interface, and is implemented by using three

    Java-based packages, i.e. InterPSS, JADE and JUNG respectively.
