Voltage regulation

describes the ability of a system to provide near-constant voltage over a wide range of load conditions.

Pros

Keeps our electrical equipment running smoothly.

Cons

Can be hard to manage when DER sources are added to a distribution system.

Real Talk

Utilities often struggle to accommodate RE-DER because of voltage control. Enabling advanced inverter controls would give distribution system operators a new voltage regulation tool. Additionally, transparent utility systems data sharing would allow for targeted investments that could be integrated more economically.
