Abstract: Recently, multi-agent system (MAS) is predicted to play important role in the electric power system in term of fast decision, control and reliability. In this paper, a new application of multi-agent system to present hierarchical level-I (HL-I) for power system generation reliability assessment is proposed. The MAS consist of three agents as follows; first agent is the generator agent which is used to connect the generator to the grid depending on the state of the load demand, the second is a load agent is that located at the load and third is so-called the "master agent" that control the generators and load agents together. The agents are created from IEEE 30-bus test system that implemented by using the JADE package in term of loss of load probability index and loss of load expectation index for each state by Monte Carlo method. The simulation result shows the effectiveness of proposed multi-agent approach to provide fast and cost effective techniques.
