Recommended Practice For Interconnecting Distributed Resources
With Electric Power Systems Distribution Secondary Networks
IEEE Std 1547.6 was published in September 2011. The published standard is available from the IEEE Std 1547.6-2011 Web page.
IEEE 1547.6-2011 Recommended Practice For Interconnecting Distributed Resources With Electric Power Systems Distribution Secondary Networks
This standard builds upon IEEE Standard 1547 for the interconnection of distributed resources (DR) to distribution secondary network systems. This standard establishes recommended criteria, requirements and tests, and provides guidance for interconnection of distribution secondary network system types of area electric power systems (Area EPS) with distributed resources (DR) providing electric power generation in local electric power systems (Local EPS).
This standard focuses on the technical issues associated with the interconnection of Area EPS distribution secondary networks with a Local EPS having DR generation. The standard provides recommendations relevant to the performance, operation, testing, safety considerations, and maintenance of the interconnection. In this standard consideration is given to the needs of the Local EPS to be able to provide enhanced service to the DR owner loads as well as to other loads served by the network. Equally, the standard addresses the technical concerns and issues of the Area EPS. Further, this standard identifies communication and control recommendations and provides guidance on considerations that will have to be addressed for such DR interconnections.
