The distribution network controlled using transformers and tap-changing has proven reliable, however controllability of voltage is limited at best and faces the greatest challenge in remote and rural areas.

An active series voltage regulator is proposed to provide a more stable and smarter local supply. The unit proposed will in effect prevent or at worst delay the cost of reinforcing problematic distribution circuits.

Voltage control on the LV network where voltage control through primary transformer tap changers is no longer sufficient. I.e locations where there are high levels of load or distributed generation
