In this work, we design a functional prototype for a novel multiagent systems (MAS)services architecture for the important and challenging to engineer vehicle-to-grid (V2G)and grid-to-vehicle (G2V) energy transfer problem. The prototype was developed usingJADE, a FIPA (Foundation of Intelligent Physical Agents)-standards compliant multiagent platform. Agent communication is based on the exchange of appropriate FIPA-ACLagent communication language messages, and on well-defined communication protocolsspecifically tailored to our application domain. As part of our work, we defined two noveldesign patterns, which allow the developers (i) to reuse the protocol parts and logic defined in the framework, and (ii) to customize key agent functionalities or capabilitiesaccording to their needs/goals. We demonstrate the functionality and effectiveness ofour system prototype on a variety of realistic use case scenarios, executed using bothreal-world and synthetic datasets.
