American Electric Power (AEP) has signed an agreement to expand the deployment of the Utilidata AdaptiVolt Volt/VAR Optimization (VVO) technology on substations in its Indiana Michigan Power operating company territory.

The expanded deployment will replicate the results achieved with the AdaptiVolt technology as part of AEP's gridSMART project in order to reduce demand and create energy savings for customers, Utilidata says.

According to the company, the VVO technology will allow utilities to accommodate energy flows from wind, solar and distributed resources across the grid, based on real-time conditions.
