The fundamental role of autonomous agents in managing activities of space systems has emerged from 1990s with the NASAs Remote Agent Experiment. This paper gives a contribution in exploring the possible advantages of employing multiple agents to efficiently and autonomously manage electrical energy on a satellite. The general idea is to associate an agent to each subsystem of the satellite in order to manage its activities. The global interaction between agents allows to obtain an efficient electrical energy consumption. We experimentally validated our system in the scenario provided by Palamede, a low Earth orbit satellite under development at the Department of Aerospace Engineering of the Politecnico di Milano.
