Arizona Public Service (APS) recently deployed utility-owned solar arrays equipped with smart inverters on 1,600 residential rooftops, integrating them with a central control system. EPRI and APS are assessing the inverters’ performance to help provide the electric power industry with best practices. This report discusses insights in several research areas including: impacts of distributed solar […]
This report details EPRI work to design and test an algorithm for optimization of Volt/VAR&mdasha smart inverter function that allows distributed energy resources to help maintain acceptable voltage along a feeder under various grid operating conditions. It can monitor and control smart inverter–connected distributed energy resources.
