The possibility of leveraging the data provided by smart meters to understand the load characteristics is studied in this paper. The loads are modeled as voltage-dependent elements to increase the accuracy of volt-VAR optimization (VVO) techniques for distribution systems. VVO techniques are part of the distribution management system and may be used for purposes such as loss reduction, voltage profile improvement, and conservation voltage reduction. A deterministic framework is proposed that… CONTINUE READING
