Volt/Var Regulation and Optimization Workshop


The course is developed for electrical engineers involved with the design and/or optimization of electrical distribution networks. The workshop provides participants with an understanding of the components of Volt/VAR control and the associated electric distribution system. Volt/VAR optimization is a process of optimally managing voltage levels and reactive power to achieve more efficient grid operation by reducing system losses, peak demand or energy consumption or a combination of the three. Course also focuses on grounding, harmonics and ferroresonance. Curriculum will center on overall system coordination rules and daily procedures.
