The Yukon Volt/Var Management software applications monitor real-time voltages, watts and VARs from LTCs, regulators, capacitors, medium voltage sensors, and additional monitoring points such as customer meters. Using this real time set of analog measurements, the Yukon Volt/Var Management software applications will trigger a control period during which the real time power factor and voltage measurement set is assigned an operational cost. The operational cost is determined from the analog measurement set compared against substation power factor and voltage targets.
The Yukon Intelligent Capacitor Control application was first deployed in 2001 for substation and feeder var management. In 2004, the Capacitor Control application functionality was broadened to support substation and feeder voltage management. In 2009, the Yukon Integrated Volt/Var Control application was added to the Volt/Var Management solution to support more granular voltage management.
