A hierarchical framework incorporated with multi-agents is proposed for enabling the self-healing of smart grid. While the central control agent in the upper layer adopts the multiple-step Taylor series function (MTSF) method to efficiently predict the system stability using wide area measurement system (WAMS) data, agents with shared information in the lower layer protect the devices in plug-in micro grids more effectively and adaptively compared with traditional protection. The proposed framework shows the self-healing capability for ensuring the security of smart grid by reliably preventing faults and flexibly coordinating generations. Simulation results of modified WSCC 3-generator system with plug-in micro grids have confirmed the validity of the proposed framework.
