2015 Workshop on Fault-Induced Delayed Voltage Recovery (FIDVR) & Dynamic Load Modeling

Publication Type


Date Published




The workshop seeks to bring together the power system and end-use manufacturing communities to review jointly what is now known about FIDVR and the related activities currently underway to ensure the reliability of the U.S. electric power system.

Workshop Objectives:

  1. Increase understanding of FIDVR fundamentals for utilities and manufacturing communities
  2. Present findings from DOE- and industry-sponsored efforts to better understand and address FIDVR:
    • End-use equipment testing
    • Distribution system monitoring
    • Distribution and transmission system modeling studies
    • Enhanced load models and load modeling tools
    • Utility-led planning studies using enhanced load models
    • Sensitivities studies to address uncertainty

Workshop Sessions:

Session One: Current State of Load Modeling

Session Two: Fundamentals, Testing, and Modeling of Air Conditioners

Session Three: Manufacturing Perspectives, Future Trends, and Technologies (Panel Session)

Session Four: Load Model Data

Session Five: Field Measurements

Session Six: Composite Load Modeling & System Studies (Panel Session)

Session Seven: Reliability Focus (Panel Session)
