All-electric ship power systems have finite generation and include a large portion of dynamic loads and nonlinear loads relative to the total power capacity. Therefore, the load demand and power generation of the system should be matched in real-time. In this paper, a novel multi-agent system-based real-time load management technique is proposed to optimally determine the switch status of loads in DC zones while satisfying the operating constraints of the system in real-time. The multi-agent system cooperative control protocol is developed based on a proposed reduced-order agent model and artificial potential function of the multi-agent system, which aims to maximize the energized loads in the all-electric ship power system. The cooperative controller aims to cooperatively achieve the group objectives that are difficult to reach by centralized controller. Further, simulation results verify the viability and performance of the proposed technique in PSCAD/EMTDC software.
