2009 DOE-NERC Workshop on Fault-Induced Delayed Voltage Recovery (FIDVR)

Publication Type


Date Published




Workshop Objectives

  1. To increase understanding within the electric utility and air conditioning manufacturing communities about the risks to electricity reliability associated with fault-induced delayed voltage recovery;
  2. To share recent utility industry experiences that provide the basis for this concern and the efforts that they are currently undertaking to address them;
  3. To present technical information on what is known about the underlying electrical phenomena, both from a macro or system level perspective, as well as from a micro or device level perspective;
  4. To review and discuss technical options, on both the supply and demand-side, to address these concerns, including their cost, timing, and relative efficacy, toward understanding the appropriate elements needed for a coordinated and balanced response
