Keywords: Agent-simulation, Electric load, Multicriteria optimization

We describe how to employ the agent-based modeling techniques in the load management problem. In our prototype software, Power Agents, the consumer agents are modelled by multicriteria optimization behaviour balancing hourly trade-offs between costs and comfort.
