AMI Information Fusion Based on MAS

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 223)


With the rapid development of smart gird, multi-source information fusion of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) has become as one of the key problems, because AMI components are always distributed and heterogeneous. On the basis of requirement analysis, this paper proposes an open AMI information integration platform based on multi-agent system(MAS). The platform is composed of three layers: data layer, business layer, and interface layer. The function and structure of each agent in the platform are presented, and the software implementation scheme based on JADE is given. The proposed platform can effectively integrate and highly share the heterogeneous information in AMI system.
