In addressing various issues in the transition to a sustainable and low carbon society, Smart Grids can play a significant role. Smart Grids use both state-of-the-art as well as emerging technologies in the field of Power Electronics (PE) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as core enablers. In such a context an ICT agent-based approach to deploy artificial intelligence into distributed system operation is an appropriate and promising technology to handle the system complexity and can enhance the overall performance of the grid. To adapt to the unpredictability of the myriads of small-scale generation and controllable loads, various agent-based technologies to facilitate the operation of Smart Grids have been developed. The agent-based functions are highly autonomous and operate independently while their mutual influences on each other are currently are understood and studied. This paper discusses the possibility of mutual interaction in a unified framework with the objective to facilitating both ancillary services and energy trading. An integrated platform for harmonizing the agent-based functions is proposed under the context of Smart Grids, with specific focus on Smart Distribution Networks.
