Agent-based demand management in a power distribution network by considering distributed generations

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A distribution network carries electricity from transmission network

    to consumers through facilities such as substations, buses and feeders. Distributed

    generations emerge as the new alternative power resource to a distribution network

    at a smaller and distributed scale. On one hand, distributed generations

    can decrease substations’ load and power price. On the other hand, they will

    bring difficulties to substations for demand management. This paper proposes a

    multiagent model to represent a radial distribution network. The model includes

    five types of agents, which are substation agents, bus agents, feeder agents, load

    agents and generation agents. Through communicating with neighbouring agents,

    each agent can dynamically balance its own power supply and consumption, so

    as to perform the demand management to the distribution network. The Java

    Agent Development Framework (JADE) was employed to implement the proposed

    agents and multiagent system. The simulation result on a case study well

    demonstrates the good design and performance of the proposed multiagent system

    in both agents communication and demand management.
