ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 23 -- Dominion Energy, Richmond, Virginia, has been assigned a patent (No. 10,386,872, initially filed May 12, 2017) developed by two co-inventors for an "electric power system control with planning of energy demand and energy efficiency using AMI-based data analysis." The co-inventors are Melissa A. Peskin, Richmond, Virginia, and Phillip W. Powell, Chesterfield County, Virginia.
The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=10,386,872.PN.&OS=PN/10,386,872&RS=PN/10,386,872
The abstract states: "A method, apparatus, system and computer program is provided for controlling an electric power system, including implementation of an energy planning process (EPP) system which can be used to plan a voltage control and conservation (VCC) system applied to an electrical distribution connection system (EEDCS). The EPP system plans modifications to the EEDCS as a result of operating the VCC system in the "ON" state, in order to maximize the level of energy conservation achieved by the VCC system control of the EEDCS. The EPP system may also identify potential problems in the EEDCS for correction."
