What can be done against too large voltage variation in the distribution grid?

Joel A. Kern, Global Product Manager

ABB's answer

There are basically three possibilities:
(a) the maximum power of loads and generators in the distribution grid allowed to connect to an existing grid is being limited. This is not satisfying the utility customer needs.
(b) the existing grid is reinforced by adding additional cable or overhead conductors and other components. Depending on the size of the grid, this can be very costly.
(c) using a voltage regulating device for controlling the voltage.
