DVCA technology the oil that keeps smart grid machinery working
Making the power grid more flexible, resilient, and efficient is the single most important objective for electric utilities today, and a number of voltage-adjustment and reactive power correction technologies, known as dynamic voltage and VAR control architectures (DVCAs), can help ensure power delivery that is both reliable at peak loads and continuously efficient, according to Navigant Research.
"Electricity loads are becoming more variable and intermittent sources are becoming a larger portion of the energy supply, increasing the need for advanced, controllable DVCA technologies," said James McCray, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. "These solutions serve as oil in the machinery, keeping transformers, generators, transmission lines, and distribution systems from overheat
