Introduction to IEEE Std 1547-2018: Connecting Distributed Energy Resources

  • Course Program

This standard has a significant impact on the design and deployment of all DER systems, removes limitations from the original standard, and adds requirements for “smart inverters.” Are your engineers prepared for these changes?

Available online and on-demand, train your entire technical team how to best implement this important standard. 

What you will learn:

  • Review the interconnection testing and verification requirements included in the IEEE 1547 standard
  • Requirements for interoperability and open access at the DER
  • Clauses and annexes of IEEE Std 1547-2018
  • System power quality and the limitations from the distributed energy resource's perspective to meet the power quality requirements at the interconnection point
