Massive interconnection of power network has posed an operational challenge. The concept of intelligent control for regulating the power network variables has been realized. The intelligent agent based control can be a solution in today's power network to maintain the dynamics such as adequate power balance along with quality voltage under changing system conditions such as load and power injection. The technology with multi-agent intelligent control may be main module of Smart Grid architecture. This paper presents a concept of multi-agent intelligent grid control. A case study has been done to demonstrate the functionality in Matlab-Simulink environment. The multi-agent system is implemented by using an open source agent building toolkit Java Agent Development framework (JADE). Finally, both micro grid simulation and multi-agent system are connected together via MACSimJX toolbox. The simulation results indicate that proposed multi-agent system may facilitate the seamless transition from grid connected to an island mode when upstream outages are detected. This reveals the intelligence of multi-agent system for controlling the micro grid operation.
