Next Generation of S&C IntelliTeam® VV Software Increases Energy Efficiency, Expands Applications

CHICAGO, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- S&C Electric Company, a smart grid leader shaping the future of reliable electric delivery, today announces the latest generation of its IntelliTeam® VV Volt-Var Optimization System. With this new software release, IntelliTeam VV can work with a broader range of equipment, ultimately helping utilities realize more system-wide energy efficiency improvements. In addition, the enhanced platform now supports 240-volt systems, which are used in Europe and Australia.


The new software supports multiple levels of line regulation, and allows utilities to control them independent of one another. This gives grid operators more precise voltage control for an even higher level of power quality, and makes it possible to achieve greater reductions in peak demand and energy usage.

"Precise control capabilities are essential for maximizing the energy efficiency improvements that can be realized through a volt-var optimization solution," says Chris McCarthy, Director--Automation Systems, S&C. "IntelliTeam VV offers real-time control and works seamlessly with automatic reconfiguration systems, making it an effective solution to improving grid performance." S&C's volt-var optimization system helps utilities increase overall energy efficiency by improving power factor and reducing voltage across the distribution system. Poor power factor due to uncompensated reactive power decreases system capacity and wastes energy. S&C's IntelliTeam VV also enables Conservation Voltage Reduction, which allows utilities to lower voltage levels at the end user--eliminating the waste associated with running system voltage conservatively high--while still meeting power quality requirements.

"IntelliTeam VV already gives utilities more precise voltage control by maintaining a narrower voltage operating range while ensuring that feeder voltage remains within specified limits, but the new software release now gives greater control over how utilities can configure their systems, too," says McCarthy.

The new features allow utilities to create voltage zones where multiple grid devices can be grouped as an independently configurable zone, as well as voltage buffers that are configurable for automatic calculation and adjustment. In addition, the software now offers reporting on communication devices, alerting utility personnel to equipment issues that could impact performance of a volt-var optimization system.

About S&C Electric Company S&C, with global headquarters in Chicago, USA, is applying its heritage of innovation to address challenges facing the world's power grids and is thus shaping the future of reliable electricity delivery. The mission of employee-owned S&C is to continually develop new solutions for electricity delivery, fostering the improved efficiency and reliability required for the intelligent grid.
