Gridco Systems Introduces Integrated Power Regulating Transformer for CVR/VVO

Gridco Systems has announced the launch of a new product, the Gridco Systems Power Regulating Transformer (PRT). The single-phase 50 kVa pad-mounted multi-function device is designed for North American distribution utility use in edge-of-grid applications for more actionable control.

The first commercially available product of its kind, the PRT combines a pad-mounted distribution transformer with a power electronics-based Gridco Systems In-line Power Regulator (IPR), packaged in an integrated assembly for installation on existing distribution transformer pads. The PRT-50 provides distribution utilities with a new tool to more effectively integrate Distributed Energy Resources (DER), enhance Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) and peak demand management programs, assure power quality to sensitive customer equipment, and increase overall system reliability.
