Project Summary:

Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative’s (NOVEC) Electric Distribution System Automation Program project is deploying digital devices to expand automation and control systems to cover a majority of NOVEC’s substations and distribution circuits. The project also deploys a new communications network to compliment the distribution system upgrades, providing more precise monitoring of grid operations. The project aims to improve system efficiencies, reduce line losses, and enhance situational awareness of the system and critical components to improve reliability and lower operating costs.


- Distribution System Automation/Upgrade for 135 of 235 Circuits
--- Automated Capacitors
--- Remote Feeder Switches
--- Automated Voltage Regulators
- Substation Automation/Upgrade for 29 of 53 Substations
--- Communications Equipment/SCADA
--- Smart Relays

Targeted Benefits:

- Increased Electric Service Reliability and Power Quality
- Reduced Cost from Distribution Line Losses
- Reduced Operations and Maintenance Costs
- Deferred Generation Capacity Investments
- Reduced Greenhouse Gas and Criteria Pollutant Emissions
- Reduced Truck Fleet Fuel Usage
