AMI data can be leveraged to dramatically increase CVR results according to new webinar

Open Access Technology International, Inc. (OATI) and NRTC develop detailed webinar about how electric cooperatives can avoid demand charges and save power using advanced leverage from existing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) installations and Conservative Voltage Reduction (CVR) techniques.
Minneapolis, Minnesota: October 22, 2014 — With the penetration of AMI on the rise, electric co-ops have the opportunity to utilize advanced CVR techniques to improve reliability and economic results.
Join OATI and NRTC for a free, educational webinar to learn how advanced CVR techniques can add value to existing AMI installations. Advanced CVR techniques can leverage real-time measurement and violation alarm data coming from AMI meters to deliver a larger energy consumption decrease. Unlike traditional CVR solutions, with these new techniques voltage constraints are actually measured, not just estimated.
CVR is one of the most cost-effective ways utilities can manage electrical loads and gives utilities significant reliability benefits using voltage regulation to adjust load consumption within system reliability limits. By deliberately and actively controlling electrical network devices, utilities can reduce consumption through voltage changes on the network, thus avoiding unnecessary demand charges.
CVR Webinar dates and times:

  • Tuesday, October 28, 2014            11:30 AM – 12:30 PM CDT
  • Thursday, October 30, 2014           12:30 PM – 1:30 PM CDT
