Abstract

Recent interest in the smart grid or intelligent grid concept focuses on the desired capabilities of future energy networks, without much consideration of how to transition from current networks to the smart grid of tomorrow. This paper explores the required functionality and capability of an intelligent network management system, and shows how agent technology can address these needs. Agents can provide the platform for staged deployment of smart grid functionality, allowing the integration of current equipment and systems while remaining extensible for future developments. This paper describes how agent technology can be used to achieve this goal.
