This paper is proposed a method to improve distribution automation system (DAS) restoration efficiency by including multi-agent system (MAS) and changing from centralized to distributed system. Multi-agent concept in this paper is defined by a notion from the IEEE Power Engineering Society's (PES) intelligent system subcommittee (within the PSACE Committee) working group. Intelligent distributed restoration is a novel restoration method to use mutual information exchange, automatic fault section separation, and more quick, reliable, exactly restoration. It's suggested some application methods for distributed restoration including MAS in DAS. Proposed system is proved by field test at Gochang field test center in Korea and integrating in DAS for future (IDMS: intelligent distribution management system).
