Modeling and Simulation of MAS-based Management System for Smart Grid with Smart Homes

Chen Miao, Tai Nengling, Ji Kang

Abstract

Traditional power system is undergoing revolutionary changes. Concepts like Smart Grid and Smart Home have come into practice due to high penetration of distributed generation and advanced information technologies. This paper incorporates Smart Home and Smart Grid. It focuses on a community where houses are equipped with photovoltaic panels, energy storage system and smart appliances. A new management system is proposed based on multi-agent technology. Agents are designed to be intelligence, autonomous and with high plug-and-play capability. System control architecture has three levels corresponding to management of devices, houses and community. A two-level operation optimization scheme is proposed, in which operation optimization problem is decomposed into five constrained multi-objective problems, mutual supply mechanism is deployed to efficiently coordinate Smart Homes and NSGA-II is introduced to obtain Pareto-optimal solutions. Simulation results validate the effectiveness of proposed management system.
