The paper deals with the multiagent systems for the power system topology verification. Two of such multiagent systems are considered. The idea of topology verification utilized in each of them allows considering the topology verification of a whole power system as the set of many local verification processes. Each of the described multiagent systems performs the topology verification over a different protocol. Types of agent defined for these systems are different. For each of the considered multiagent systems, analysis and design are outlined using the Multiagent Systems Engineering. For their design models, the performance evaluation has been carried out. Then, a comparison of the investigated multiagent systems is made, paying special attention to their performance effectiveness.
