Buffalo Power Energy Society Presentation

#Power #Energy #Babak #WIE

Speaker: PES Distinguished Lecturer Dr. Babak Enayati, National Grid

Presentation title: IEE E 1547 standard and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) interconnections

Abstract: Due to the increasing amount of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) interconnections with the Electric Power System, the IEEE 1547 standard is going through a major revision to address some of the technical issues associated with high penetration of DERs i. e. grid support functionalities, etc.  The attendees of this presentation will learn about the major changes to the IEEE 1547 i. e. voltage regulation, response to abnormal system conditions (including voltage and frequency ride through), power quality, islanding, interoperability, etc.  The participants will also learn about the utility concerns/solutions to adopt the revised IEEE 1547 standard.


Meeting location: Bonner Hall room 414, University at Buffalo North Campus, Amherst NY 14228
