    This work proposes a model of an intelligent short term demand side management system based on a MAS. The system is designed to avoid peaks of power request greater than a given threshold and to give maximum comfort to user. The proposed system is composed of a distributed network of processing nodes (PN). Each PN hosts one agent and it is able to manage a single socket tap allowing or disallowing it to supply power. Each agent reacts to a new critical condition entering in competition with the others to gain the access at a shared limited resource. As the results shown the proposed agency can be the consumer's key to take advantage of a DSM program automatically
