Distributed energy resource (DER) responses are fast becoming critical to bulk power system (BPS) reliability. As a result, the DER interconnection and interoperability standard outlined in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1547-2018 revision has drawn significant attention in the industry.
In this paper, ICF experts explore the complexity of navigating the DER requirement to support bulk system reliability under IEEE 1547-2018. In the process, they reveal:
- Why utilities should engage with IEEE 1547-2018 implementation.
- How to balance the tension between distribution and BPS needs.
- The key decision points for implementing IEEE 1547-2018.
