Look at how volt/var control needs to change for the smart grid. Start by looking at how volt/var control is presently implemented with and without DAC for example and how it needs to change for the smart grid.
We need to understand how new technologies such as distributed resources, renewables, plug-in hybrids and their increased penetration in the distribution system will impact volt/var control and how it needs to change for the future. Also, the smart grid can benefit from technologies such as smart inverters that can not only provide active power but also non-active power control and thus provide volt/var control. Along with the technology issues, we need to drive how the standards need to evolve or shift to account for needed technology and system changes..
