https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2211966/Dynamic-Volt/VAR-Control-Architectures.html

Dynamic VVC Equipment and Solutions: ADMS VVC Applications, Communications, VVC Analytics, VVC Devices, IVVC, CVR, Power Electronics, Grid Edge VVC Control, and Smart Inverters

Today's utility is challenged to modernize its grid to survive the present while being old-fashioned enough to ensure high quality and reliability in power delivery. In a smart distribution utility, energy is carefully managed to support smooth operation of critical infrastructure while facilitating a clean, economic, and safe environment in which to live, work, and play. Grid modernization is arguably the single most important focus for any utility as aging and congestion lead to power quality issues and more frequent outages.

Advanced, controllable dynamic Volt/VAR control architecture (DVCA) technologies and various Volt/VAR devices and control solutions can serve as oil in the machinery. They can keep transformers, generators, transmission lines, and distribution systems from overheating, reducing the risk of being retired or upgraded before the end of their intended lifespan. In areas with growing penetration of distributed energy resources (DER), Volt/VAR control (VVC) is emerging as an ancillary service to be provided by microgrids, power factor correction (PFC) systems, distributed PV, and electric vehicle (EV) chargers. Navigant Research forecasts that global annual DVCA revenue will grow from $734.1 million in 2014 to $2.9 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for DVCA solutions and components, with a focus on communications, VVC devices, distribution management system (DMS) VVC applications, and VVC analytics. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including trends, drivers, and benefits, related to DVCA solutions. Global market forecasts for revenue, segmented by region, solution type, and component segment, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies, as well as the competitive landscape, associated with DVCA systems and solutions for the medium-voltage and low-voltage distribution grid.
