This paper proposes a multi-agent system for restoration of an electric power distribution network that can perform an efficient and fast switching operation to isolate faults, restore power to the de-energized area, and secure critical loads. Local or distributed generation (DG) is present in the network but has a limited capability to serve the entire microgrid load. In this paper, the multi-agent system (MAS) is designed, developed and implemented in JAVA Agent Development Framework (JADE). Simulation results show that the proposed MAS is able to achieve a real-time restoration of the microgrid and secure critical loads upon the occurrence of an upstream fault.
