In the background of searching a way for China’s electricity market reformation, a lot of researchers make focus on the stage of opening the generation side stage. Based on the detailed analysis of its structure, this paper first describes the generation side electricity market operating model. And then a risk-based simulation system based on multi-agent technology is designed. By considering some of the issues that need to be paid attention in the traditional simulation process of electricity market, a risk-based simulation analysis software structure is schemed out. It can provide some technical support for market simulation system designers.
