DVI Introduces EDGE Stabilizer to Manage Distributed Energy Resources on the Grid

Dominion Voltage, Inc. (DVI), a grid-optimization subsidiary of Dominion Resources, today announced the launch of its EDGE Stabilizer™, a patent-pending addition to its suite of voltage optimization products for use at utilities with high levels of distributed energy resources (DER) like solar and wind. The new product better supports DER by managing voltage compliance.
 
“Market forces are significantly increasing the amount of DER, and utilities need cost effective ways to safely and efficiently integrate DER into their grids,” said Todd Headlee, executive director of DVI. “In areas with high levels of DER, EDGE Stabilizer minimizes the need for additional costly hardware devices or other distribution system upgrades by orchestrating the use of existing residential smart inverters, large scale inverters, load tap changers, capacitors, voltage regulators and AMI/smart meters to ensure utility customer voltages remain in compliance.”
 
EDGE Stabilizer integrates detailed weather forecasts to anticipate voltage volatility on a circuit-by-circuit basis.
