Voltage Reduction Task Force

The Voltage Reduction Task Force (VRTF) VRTF researches the latest distribution system voltage reduction technologies. VRTF’s scope of work includes:

  • Developing testing methods to validate the effectiveness of voltage reduction in multiple areas and share testing results;
  • Analyzing the findings of the test and comparing them to industry experience;
  • Cooperate with DWG to evaluate the dynamic effect of voltage reduction on the transmission system;
  • Providing control system and operational options with the relative costs and benefits of the different options;
  • Estimating the potential seasonal MW reduction that ERCOT could recognize based on the different operational options;
  • Reporting findings to ROS.
