IEEE 1547™ DER INTERCONNECTION WITH ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS 
A STANDARDS AND CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT WORKSHOP

Workshop Information: 
DATE: 26 September 2018 
TIME: 8:30AM-5:00PM 
(Registration starts at 8:00AM) 
LOCATION: Atlanta, GA
VENUE: NERC, 3353 Peachtree Road, NE Suite, 600 North Tower

Due to the increasing amount of DER interconnections with the Electric Power System, the IEEE 1547™ standard has recently gone through a major revision to address some of the technical issues associated with high penetration of DERs e.g., grid support functionalities. This Distributed Energy Resources workshop will introduce the IEEE 1547™-2018, Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Distributed Energy Resources with Associated Electric Power Systems Interfaces, as well as discuss transmission level integration, and certification and commissioning.

 

Who Should Attend: 

  • Regulators
  • Commission Staff
  • Utilities
  • DER Asset Owners
  • Equipment Vendors
  • Test Engineers

 

Key Ares of Discussion:

  • Education on IEEE 1547 - DER Interconnection for Distribution Systems
  • Transmission level DER integration and some real-time data on outages and field issues
  • DER conformity assessment based on IEEE 1547.1 - includes type testing of inverters, commissioning tests and periodic interconnection/lifecycle testing
  • Affect of new IEEE 1547 requirements on policy makers and state regulations

 

The participants will learn about:

  • major changes to the IEEE 1547 including voltage regulation, response to abnormal system conditions (including voltage and frequency ride through), power quality, islanding, interoperability and more
  • utility concerns/solutions to adopt the revised IEEE 1547 standard
  • the impact and considerations for those having jurisdiction
  • the difference between a type test and a commissioning test as defined in the IEEE 1547.1 standard
