Grid Edge Control

February 14, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

This presentation will cover the impact of decentralized dynamic grid edge control on the distribution feeder voltage, and the possible impact that this could have on grid operations. Voltage volatility along the grid edge occurs due to varying customer loads and distributed solar installations, and can impact initiatives such as energy conservation, line loss minimization, peak demand reduction and improved reliability. The presentation will show results from pilots demonstrating the potential for decentralized control at multiple points along the feeder. The 'grid edge' is an area of growing concern for the utility industry, as it impacts key utility initiatives such as grid integration of distributed solar, and the ability to achieve many critical grid optimization benefits. Dynamic Volt/VAR control at the grid edge is a first application of decentralized solutions by the utility industry.
