About the Workshop

With technical support from NREL, Florida State University hosted the workshop at the Center for Advanced Power Systems in Tallahassee, Florida. The goal of the workshop was to encourage discussion and collaboration on grid simulator testing among panelists, moderators, and workshop participants. At the workshop, the discussion included methods and practices used in grid compliance testing of utility-scale and distributed wind turbine generators, solar photovoltaic inverters, and energy storage. Attendees also shared experiences in development of advanced testing methods for inverter-coupled technologies, such as grid forming controls, microgrid operation, impedance characterization, and provision of essential reliability services by variable renewable generation and energy storage.
