Volt/VAR Optimization (VVO) is quickly becoming one of the most cost-effective tools to conserve energy and reduce wholesale demand charges for the public power market.

Enabled by the emergence of solid-state metering and modern AMI networks, VVO has been proven to be one of the strongest business case drivers to support grid modernization efforts while at the same time providing valuable savings to the end-use customer.  VVO has become even more important as the growth of distributive generation becomes more a fact of everyday distribution planning and system management.

Come learn how the VVO business case would work at your electric utility. The workshop also will provide information of actual energy saved by electric cooperatives using bellwether sets of smart meters.

Topics at this workshop will include:

  • Overview of VVO technology and use cases
  • Overview of the various VVO methodologies
  • Voltage capabilities of a modern AMI system
  • The VVO Business Case
  • Demand Response, Energy Efficiency, Renewables Integration
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis
