In this paper, a Multi Agent System (MAS) based on sequence current magnitudes and current direction is proposed for fault location and isolation in a smart microgrid system. Each of the fault types has a different impact on the sequence current components, which along with the direction of the current during a fault can be used for fault location. The microgrid has been implemented by adding Distributed Generation at various locations of the 37-bus IEEE benchmark system and its fault simulation has been done in OpenDss which is an open source distribution system simulation software.
