I installed the Field Permissions module to grant access of the individual fields to the roles.

I need to change the permission of some fields when an event occurs. How do I can add the field edit permission to the Action component of the Rules module?

To my knowledge, there is no way you can "add the field edit permission to the Action component of the Rules module" (as in your question), which is somehow confirmed in the Post installation Support forum via the issue about "Field Edit Permissions Based on Rule?" also.

However, in one of the comments of that link, there is an interesting work around that might work in your case also:

Create a user role that has editing permissions for the field, then assign that user role to a user with Rules when the conditions you require are met.

You'd then possibly need to remove that role after updating the content depending on your workflow.

PS: I'm assuming this question is about D7.
