Multiagent Systems (MAS) are used extensively in Smart Grid research as a mean of distributed control. The integration of power system, communication network and MAS based control system creates complex dynamics difficult to comprehend. In this paper, a co-simulation framework for the investigation of the multi-disciplinary interdependencies between the three systems will be proposed. The proposed design combines the power system simulator PSCAD/EMTDC, network simulator OPNET, and the well-recognized MAS platform JADE. In order to promote extensibility and reusability of simulation modules, as well as to enforce causality constraint, our design is in compliance with the High Level Architecture (HLA, IEEE 1516) standard.
