As a utility considers the VVC control scheme to implement and the technologies to deploy, the utility must develop a methodology to categorize its feeders in order to prioritize which circuits to install VVC equipment on first, determine how to design the feeders to optimize the VVC benefits with the newly installed equipment, implement a proven methodology to accurately quantify the impacts of VVC, and perform a cost benefit analysis to prove to the value of the VVC program as compared to other energy efficiency and demand response programs that could be implemented. The second panel session will provide updates on these measurement and verification and design strategies being used in the industry and will also offer cost-benefit analysis examples from subject matter experts in the utility industry.
