IEEE PES – IEEE 1547 and DER Short Course

IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems — Tutorial and Workshop

Due to the increasing amount of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) interconnections with the Electric Power System, the IEEE 1547 standard is going through a major revision to address some of the technical issues associated with high penetration of DERs i.e. grid support functionalities, etc. The participants will learn about the major changes to the IEEE 1547-2018 standard i. e. voltage regulation, response to abnormal system conditions (including voltage and frequency ride through), power quality, islanding, interoperability, etc. The participants will also learn about the utility concerns/solutions to adopt the revised IEEE 1547 standard. 6 PDHS will be provided to the participants on completion of this course.
