English abstract:
Smart grid technology promises to prepare today´s power systems for the challenges of the future by extensive integration of information and communication technology (ICT). One key aspect is the control paradigm which will have to be shifted from completely centralized control systems to more dezentralized concepts in order to adapt to the distributed nature of smart
grids. Multi-agent systems (MAS) are a very promising approach
for designing distributed, decentralized systems, naturally also
in the field of smart grids. This work introduces the notion of
decentralized multi-agent-based control systems (DMACS) and aims to give an overview on the different requirements and challenges on the way from current centralized control systems to DMACS. Therefore, different ICT scenarios and MAS topologies are employed to discuss the decentralization of three exemplary smart grid applications: voltage/var control, virtual power plants, and dynamic islanding. As a result, the advantages and challenges as well as ICT requirements of agent-based decentralization are outlined.
