Cooper Power Systems is participating in the Edison Electric Institute Transmission, Distribution and Metering Conference in Chicago, Illinois, on April 29-May 1, 2013.
Dan Arden, Cooper Power Systems Director of Global Products – Enterprise Software, is presenting a paper about the Objectives, Results, and Challenges of Integrated Volt/VAR Control.
Utilities strive to deliver energy within an acceptable voltage range and at a target power factor. This presentation will provide an overview of a pilot project focused on centralizing volt/VAR control, with the objectives of achieving savings for the utility and for the customer and enabling both peak and 24/7 load reduction through voltage reduction, while also delivering a clearer picture of the system parameters. The speaker will address the elements of the business case, project scope, challenges, and results.
