How does Volt-Var Control Improve Energy Efficiency on a Radial Distribution Network?
11 November 2015 7:00 pm eastern
Presented by Lance Kevin Fox, P.E., Duke Energy
This webinar will discuss:
How does Volt-Var Control improve energy efficiency on a radial distribution network?
What is a Distribution Management System and how is it used?
What are the benefits of coordinating Volt-Var Control by a centralized decision engine?
Does the theory work in the real world? (Duke Energy Ohio's CVR program
Lance Kevin Fox received his B.S. (2009) and M.S. (2010) in electrical engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is a Senior Engineer at Duke Energy, working primarily on Distribution Management System (DMS) projects. Through his work in on DMS projects , he has been engaged on Integrated Volt-Var Control (IVVC) initiatives in a few of Duke's jurisdictions. One of these endeavors, in Ohio, is the nation's largest Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) program. Currently, he is the technical lead for Grid Application projects in two of Duke's jurisdictions, Duke Energy Midwest and Duke Energy Carolinas.
