Voltage Reduction for the Duck Curve

“How can we use voltage reduction to help the duck curve?”

 

The duck curve is one of the most pressing issues in renewable energy integration. However, most methods to ameliorate this are usually quite complicated. But how can we use our engineering mindsets to solve this problem? Well, we know that if we were to reduce the voltage that an appliance uses, then its power dissipation will go down. So what if we were to have an automated system where this will occur during peak energy use times? This is the idea behind Voltage Reduction for the Duck Curve and holds a promising future for demand response regulation.
