Voltage Regulation
1010607 Voltage RegulationVoltage regulation on any electrical system is defined as the difference in voltage between periods of no load and periods of full load on the system. Characteristics of the system and the amount of load will determine the extent of the voltage regulation. To provide good electric service to customers served from the distribution system, it is necessary to maintain voltage variations within a very limited range. The voltage variation to residences has been standardized from a high limit of 126 volts to a low limit of 114 volts for a nominal 120-volt secondary service. The term nominal voltage de…
