Topics Discussed

This presentation offers a high-level overview of the revised IEEE 1547 interconnection standard, with discussion of key considerations and potential implications of integrating new capabilities into practice. There are 21 content slides in this presentation.

Topics Details
Overall scope and intent of the standard Slide 23: Shows how standards fit into the broader context of grid integration
Reactive power capabilities, voltage and reactive/active power control Slides 14-15: Highlights concept of ranges of allowable settings, and gives example of increased hosting capacity using voltage reactive-power control settings
Abnormal voltage and frequency response (ride-through) Slides 10-13: Introduces performance categories for normal and abnormal conditions, and considerations for deciding on which category to implement
Application of the standard/integrating into practice Slides 2-6: Describes four steps to consider when implementing the standard, with examples of benefits at transmission and distribution level
