Volt-VAr Management Software (VVMS) is centralized distribution automation software that optimizes circuit VAr flow and circuit voltages. Optimized VAr flow improves power factor and may result in substantial savings in cost of energy and infrastructure utilization. Optimized voltage improves power quality by preventing over and/or under voltage conditions and by achieving a flatter voltage profile along circuits.
VVMS incorporates “CVR”, an advanced conservation voltage reduction strategy that reduces real power demand by lowering customer voltages within approved limits. This is accomplished with the precise control of line capacitor banks, line voltage regulators and substation transformer tap changers.
