Pillar 4 – Localized Technology Adoption Support

Pillar 4 icon

IEEE, as the Pillar 4 coordinator, supports global peer learning and key technology standards and testing programs to support power system transformation. In addition, IEEE will support a set of countries on applying these technologies and standards at the local level. IEEE has completed a white paper for the G-PST Consortium providing an overview of power system technical standards, testing and certification most applicable to G-PST activities. IEEE is currently surveying potential partner countries on specific needs for localized technology adoption.

IEEE 2800-2022 Update: New IEEE Interconnection Standard for Large-Scale Solar, Wind, and Energy Storage

May 2022

This joint webinar for subject matter experts and academia doing research on large-scale solar, wind, and energy storage plants will provide an update on the IEEE 2800™-2022, Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) Interconnecting with Associated Transmission and Sub-Transmission Electric Power Systems, which is anticipated to publish by the end of April. The technical minimum requirements specified in 2800 for the interconnection of large-scale, transmission- and sub-transmission-connected inverter-based resources are important elements in the North American and international framework to maintain the reliability of the bulk power system with increasing amounts of IBRs, including those radially connected via VSC-HVDC facilities to the grid.

This webinar aims to review the purpose and scope of the published standard along with selected final requirements; and to provide leading examples for IEEE 2800 adoption by RTOs/ISOs, followed by time for Q&A.

IEEE Standard 1547: DER Requirements and Implementation to Interconnection Processes

August 2021

This presentation introduces key concepts and functionality required for IEEE Std 1547 compliant distributed energy resources (DERs). The presentation also includes discussion of overall DER capabilities and grid support functions under normal and abnormal grid conditions. Additional material will present considerations for adopting the standard into local jurisdictions.
Featured Speakers:

  • David Narang – Principal Engineer in the Power Systems Engineering Center, NREL; Chair of IEEE 1547 Working Group.
  • Ravi Subramaniam – Director, IEEE SA Conformity Assessment Program

Impact of Inverter Based Generation on Bulk Power System Dynamics and Short-Circuit Performance

Featured Speakers: Gary Kobet, Tennessee Valley Authority and Pouyan Pourbeik, PEACE®.

Electric power systems around the world are undergoing a historic change in their generation mix, from synchronous ac rotating machines to inverter-based resources, which are power-electronic based technologies. Conventional planning and operating practices are adapting to the benefits and challenges these resources bring to reliability of the bulk power system (BPS). One issue that is increasingly becoming apparent under higher penetrations of inverter-based resources such as wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) generation, is a reduction in fault currents and short circuit strength. This webinar explores some of the technical challenges and opportunities presented by this transformation of the grid, as has been presented in the IEEE Technical Report PES-TR68, Impact of Inverter Based Generation on Bulk Power System Dynamics and Short-Circuit Performance, July 2018, and goes a little beyond by briefly also touching on the latest developments in the industry and how some of the issues and gaps identified in the IEEE PES-TR68 are being addressed by industry efforts that have started since that time.

Power System Operator Survey Toward Global Energy Transformation Summary Report

The IEEE Standards Association and the IEEE Power and Energy Society are working with the G-PST Consortium to assess viewpoints in the area of next-generation energy (e.g. renewables, energy storage, distributed energy resources, energy efficiency, and grid modernization, etc.) to support priority needs and interests for specific countries/regions. This document provides a summary of the first survey developed and administered by IEEE in support of Pillar 4 of G-PST Consortium on Localized Technology Adoption Support. View report.
