Many utilities are in the process of implementing Smart Grid applications on the distribution grid to improve reliability and asset utilization, integrate Distributed Energy Resources (DER), and achieve a timely demand response to market and other signals. This presentation will provide (1) an overview of Smart Grid applications such as Volt-Var Optimization (VVO) and (2) utility experiences with the implementation of Distribution System State Estimator (DSSE) and Short-Term Forecasting Engine (STFE) applications that provide real-time situational awareness and predictive analytics capabilities that are needed to facilitate VVO.
