Distributed Intelligent Control Systems

Distributed Intelligent Control Systems are adaptive, self-aware, self-healing, and semiautonomous control systems in which the controller elements are not centralized but distributed over the entire system via parallel and distributed processing. In order to accomplish an objective or task, distributed computing -- parallel computing using multiple independent computers -- communicates to each other over a network to exchange the required data. Distributed intelligent control systems are agent-based system. Multi-agent systems comprise multiple intelligent software entities (agents) working together to solve the complex problem, which is difficult or impossible to an individual agent. There are many applications of multi-agent systems in power systems such as autonomous fault detection and reconfiguration, power markets, protection and co-ordination, reactive power control, etc.


Distributed Intelligent Control Systems can be used for autonomous fault detection and reconfiguration, reactive power control, in decision support systems, telecommunications and network management, for protection and co-ordination, and integrated into power markets.
