IEEE REPC Post-Conference Workshop
Subject: DER/DG Operation, Protection & Control
Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 8 AM-Noon
- Provides a background into Distributed Electric Resources (DER) operation and associated protection and control considerations for conventional and inverter-based power sources.
- Review types of DER/DG and the modes in which they can operate in parallel with the distribution system.
- Key aspects of IEEE 1547 and a sample DER interconnection screening process are highlighted.
- Details of on-site standby power system conversion to operate in parallel with the distribution system are shown.
- Protection methodology at the point-of-common coupling (PCC) and point-of-interconnection (PI) is detailed for all types of DER.
- A treatment of distribution system protection and control considerations and applications with DER is discussed, including addressing the impact of IEEE 1547A.
