IEEE White Paper

Assessment of DER Interconnection Installation for Conformance with IEEE Std 1547

Standards and codes establish the functional performance requirements of equipment interconnecting Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) with an Electric Power System (EPS). Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) evaluate equipment for safety and compliance with applicable standards and codes. Equipment meeting these requirements are then listed as suitable for their intended use in compliance with the applicable requirements. The EPS operator enters into a binding agreement with the DER operator for interconnection with the EPS at a specific site to meet the requirements of the EPS infrastructure at that location. IEEE Conformity Assessment Program proposes a process and procedure to ensure compliance with the applicable standards and the interconnection agreement.
