    With increasing penetration of electricity application in society and the need of majority of appliance to electricity, high level of reliability becomes more essential; in one hand with deregulation of electricity market in production, transmission and distribution and emerge of competitive electricity markets and in the other hand with increasing penetration of Distributed Generation (DG) because of environment issues and diminishing in fossil fuel reserves and its price growth, made microgrid more attractive. Micro grids are considers as partial of SmartGrid system to accommodate DGs as well as control, protection and operation systems for electrical equipment to connect generation to consumption in better and more reliable way to maintain adequate operation system in distribution level. A highly challenging issue in Microgrid is protection scheme, which needs to develop and modify. This paper proposes a new approach for protection in a Microgrid environment as a part of SmartGrid: Multi-agent system to Protections Coordination (MAS-ProteC) which integrated in MASGriP (Multi-Agent Smart Grid Platform), providing protection services within network operation in SmartGrid in electricity market context.
