The paper focuses on proposing a dual layered, multi agent based control system for distributed control of a microgrid aimed at intentional islanding. The architecture consists of two layers; primary layer and secondary layer. The primary layer includes a User agent, a Distributed Generator (DG) agent and a Control agent. The secondary layer consists of a Low Voltage (LV) agent and a Load agent. The Control agent is capable of supervising the secondary layer agents. The proposed multi agent based control architecture is developed using the JADE platform and it is used to control a microgrid simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK. In order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed method, investigations are carried out for islanding scenarios simulated on the test network. The results of this study show the capability of developing a reliable control mechanism for islanding operation of microgrids based on the proposed concept
