IEEE 1547 standard has gone through a major revision to address some of the technical issues associated with the high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and associated grid support functionalities due to the increasing DER interconnections with electric power systems. The participants will learn about major changes in IEEE 1547-2018 standard, including voltage regulation, response to abnormal system conditions, voltage ride-through, frequency ride-through, power quality, islanding, interoperability and the like. The participants will also learn about utility concerns/solutions with respect to adopting the revised IEEE 1547 standard.  Attendees will receive a certificate for 4.0 PDH hours.
