Smart grid is a two-way communication power grid that leads to a reliable and efficient electrical distribution grid. Smart grid technology provides a more productive usage of electricity through Artificial intelligence (AI). This paper shows the potential of implementing an optimised smart grid system with the use of Multi-Agent System (MAS) in a power grid environment. It optimises the electricity efficiency and distribution of smart grid on different level. The efficient communication of MAS and algorithm of Energy Management System (EMS) both work together to reduce electricity wastage while optimizing consumers comfort, electricity cost and reduce overloading of power supply. Thus, the optimised smart grid system was designed and developed with the use of MAS for its IEEE FIPA standards compliant communication system. Simulation studies carried out on the proposed system shows its potential to provide the optimal solutions to achieve better electricity distribution efficiency and electricity bill price. This paper demonstrates how the influences of different level of EMS with MAS decision making system will affect the smart grid.
