Off-grid microgrid applications can provide power where infrastructure costs or other issues are prohibitive for a fully connected system. IEEE has an initiative in place to make this a reality.
This webinar will:
- Address the needs of the electrical power industry to provide safe and economic access to electricity in areas of developed and developing countries where centralized electric power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure does not exist.
- Provide examples for deployment of distributed generation, storage and use of electricity based on existing technology.
- Facilitate the use of clean renewable generation of electricity in these applications through standards like IEEE P2030.10™.
- Highlight development of IEEE P2030.10 that covers the design, operations, and maintenance of a DC microgrid for rural or remote applications.
Presentations will further highlight IEEE P2030.10 project requirements for providing low voltage DC and AC power to off-grid loads.
