The active distribution network (AN) has been mentioned recently to adapt with a large-scale implementation of distributed generators. One of its enhancements is increasing interconnections to provide more than one power flow path among local control areas. These parallel physical connections might cause several problems for the network such as congestion and loop flow. Considering the characteristics of the AN, this paper proposes a decentralized approach to control power flow which has some analogies to the telephone networks. The implementation of this control mechanism is based on a multi-agent system (MAS) technology. A simulation of the power system and MAS is created to illustrate the possibility of the proposed method.
