Abstract

This paper presents a load-shedding scheme using the Talmud rule in islanded microgrid operation based on a multiagent system. Load shedding is an intentional load reduction to meet a power balance between supply and demand when supply shortages occur. The Talmud rule originating from the Talmud literature has been used in bankruptcy problems of finance, economics, and communications. This paper approaches the load-shedding problem as a bankruptcy problem. A load-shedding scheme is mathematically expressed based on the Talmud rule. For experiment of this approach, a multiagent system is constructed to operate test islanded microgrids autonomously. The suggested loadshedding scheme is tested on the test islanded microgrids based on the multiagent system. Results of the tests are discussed.
