This property sets/gets the percent reduction in active power (watts) per 1% reduction in voltage from 100% rated. Default=1. Typical values range from 0.4 to 0.8. Applies to Model=4 only. Intended to represent conservation voltage reduction or voltage optimization measures.


% Create DSS object

DSSObject = actxserver('OpenDSSEngine.DSS')

if ~DSSObject.Start(0),

                    disp('Unable to start openDSS');



DSSText = DSSObject.Text;

DSSCircuit = DSSObject.ActiveCircuit;

% Compile a model        

DSSText.Command = 'Compile C:\myPath\myModel.dss';

DSSLoads = DSSCircuit.Loads;

% activates the first load on the list

i = DSSLoads.First;

% gets the CVRwatts for the active load

myCVRwatts = DSSLoads.CVRwatts;
