Grid Voltage Regulation with Distributed Energy Resources

Utilities manage voltage drop along feeder circuits that can extend tens of miles. According to industry standards, a utility is obligated to keep the voltage at each service within 5% of its rated values. It usually accomplishes this using distributed capacitor banks and voltage regulators - automatically adjustable load-tap - changing transformers - placed at a few locations along each feeder. Distributed Energy Generation (DER) can help regulate voltage through Advanced Grid Functions (AGF) which control Reactive and Active power levels. The net result stabilizes grid frequency and voltage.
