With the growth of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), industry rules and standards have been updated to address this penetration. An overview of IEEE 1547 will be provided and the updates incorporated in the 2018 release. Some of those updates include reactive control over inverters, ride-through fault conditions, and communication requirements. Other relevant interconnection rules like California’s Rule 21 and Hawaii’s Rule 14H will also be covered. Finally, Salt River Project (SRP) has road maps in place for incorporating these new interconnection standards.
