Future active electric distribution grids, commonly referred
to as Smart Grids (SG), impose new requirements
on fault tolerance and service availability. The system
must be able to meets its designed objectives to the greatest
possible extent without human guidance. Multi-Agent
Systems (MAS) are generally considered a promising way
for handling a large number of different interconnected
Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and their services in
the context of SGs, as they do not require an explicit model
of the overall system behaviour.
This paper describes a highly distributed MAS approach
for autonomous service restoration that does not
rely on a single facilitator device, hence avoiding singlepoints-
of-failure. The design is exemplified by a test case
describing an island forming and recombination situation
showing the negotiation activities between the agents.
