V&R Energy is a leading provider of the advanced power systems engineering solutions designed to improve the stability and reliability of the electrical Transmission and Distribution networks. Founded in 1992, V&R Energy offers a wide spectrum of advanced consulting services, sophisticated scientific research, and comprehensive electrical power systems software applications for a comprehensive power system analysis, both off-line and in real time.
As the Smart Grid becomes a reality, V&R Energy offers the cutting-edge tools and unique solutions to help improve the wide-area situational awareness and real-time steady-state stability analysis and control using the phasor measurement units (PMUs). V&R Energy is the only vendor that offers the solution of utilizing the phasor measurements within the steady-state stability analysis of the grid, which goes far beyond the current methods of collecting, transmitting and visualizing the PMU data.
Our PMU-based voltage and voltage stability analysis software, ROSE is a part of the WECC Western Interconnection Synchrophasor Program (WISP) and ISO New England Synchrophasor Infrastructure and Data Utilization (SIDU) Project.
As part of our Smart Grid Solutions, we have developed the framework for reliable and economical integration of the wind power with the maximally efficient operation of the electric transmission networks, which would allow for assurance of the optimal utilization of the transmission network and its assets.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Improving reliability of the transmission grid to facilitate integration of the renewable energy;
- Predicting and preventing the Cascading Outages;
- Transmission system optimization in order to fully maximize the utilization of the existing infrastructure;
- Utilizing the PMU data to predict and prevent the power system instability;
- Bringing transient stability analysis into the real-time environment of the Control Centers;
- Automating NERC-compliance studies for the purpose of compliance with the latest NERC TPL standards;
- Automating the process for ranking and prioritization of the future expansion projects, and performing cost/benefit analysis.
V&R Energy empowers the utilities to succeed in today's competitive environment by enabling them to effectively and accurately assess the grid conditions and take timely control actions in order to prevent the occurrences of major catastrophic events.
Our solutions are based on Physical and Operational Margins (POM) Suite of industry-leading applications, which is a comprehensive Load Flow, Voltage Stability, Transient Stability, Contingency Analysis, Transmission and Distribution System Optimization, Power Transfer Analysis tool for the Real-Time, Operations and Planning environments.
V&R Energy has an extensive expertise in performing various consulting projects on behalf of the Electric Power Utilities and other organizations in the electric utility industry worldwide.
We also have a long-standing relationships with the Department of Energy (DOE), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), NRECA Cooperative Research Network (CRN), Centre for Energy Advancement through Technological Innovation (CEATI), and New York State Research and Research Development Agency (NYSERDA).
