Model-based volt/VAR Optimization

Source-to-Socket Leadership

Today's emphasis on implementing energy efficiency programs and limiting peak demand growth has driven renewed interest in the most effective method to implement volt/VAR control on distribution systems. This includes the implementation of conservation voltage reduction (CVR), in which the system demand is reduced through controlled reduction in operating voltage at customer load points. Effective CVR implementations can typically reduce demand 2-4 percent.

This white paper examines Model-based volt/VAR Optimization.
