A large-scale power system has been required to have a new control system to operate at a higher level of automation, flexibility, and robustness. In this panel, a multi-agent system based intelligent control system (MAS-ICS) is presented as an alternative methodology to control a large-scale power plant. Design of architectures for single agents and an organization of the multi-agent system is described as the foundation of the intelligent control system. The MAS-ICS has several functions that provide efficient ways to control locally and globally, and to accommodate and overcome the complexity in the large-scale distributed systems. Moreover, it is shown that the fundamental principle of MAS can be applied well in the large-scale distributed complex power system.
