Start and end dates: 
January, 2010 to December, 2012
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
Field test Lungau: medium voltage grid including a transformer station and 4 hydro power plants included in the control loop. ZUQDE will develop further the DMS application Volt/var Control (VVC) to keep a certain voltage level in the whole distribution network with a high penetration of Distributed Generation (DG). This will enable three possible actions: changing the reactive power output of DG units, changing transformer taps, switching capacitor banks. The experimental development will be finalized with the closed loop operation of VVC in the network of Lungau, Salzburg.
