S&C Electric Co. has released 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, the company says, adding that the 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, according to S&C Electric.

The new features allow utilities to create voltage zones, in which 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.
