Interoperability, Information Exchange and Networks, and Protocols in IEEE Std 1547-2018
In this course the requirements for interoperability and open access at the DER are reviewed. Learners will examine the IEEE Std 1547 local communication interface followed by application protocols, and review functional capabilities and interoperability aspects not addressed by IEEE 1547.
Brian Seal is the Senior Program Manager for Distributed Energy Resource Integration at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). He is responsible for directing the technical staff and managing a portfolio of research that address the challenges of integrating solar, storage, and other DERs with the grid.
Brian joined EPRI in 2008 and is involved in global efforts to define smart inverter functionality, protocols, DERMS, and integration architectures. He is an active member of IEC and IEEE standards groups that develop interconnection and communication standards for DER. Brian is the editor of the “Common Functions for Smart Inverters” technical reference that serves as a basis for standards and the EPRI federated architecture for DER Integration.
