IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources
with Electric Power Systems

NOTICE: On December 3-4, 2013, an IEEE SCC21 workshop was held (see Introductory slides) to establish draft text for the IEEE project authorization request (PAR) for 1547 revision. Minutes will be forthcoming.

Meeting Information
The IEEE P1547 (Revision) inaugural Working Group meeting is scheduled for April 23-25, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV:

  • Wednesday, April 23: 8 am - 5 pm
  • Thursday, April 24: 8 am - 5 pm
  • Friday, April 25: 8 am - 12 noon.

A draft agenda, hotel, and other meeting-related information will be forthcoming.

IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems was approved by the IEEE Standards Board in June 2003. It was approved as an American National Standard in October 2003. The published standard is available from the IEEE Std 1547-2003 Web page.

The USA Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 calls for state commissions to consider certain standards for electric utilities. Under Section 1254 of the act: "Interconnection services shall be offered based upon the standards developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers:
IEEE Standard 1547 for Interconnecting Distributed Resources With Electric Power Systems, as they may be amended from time to time."


Standard Title
IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems

Scope
This standard establishes criteria and requirements for interconnection of distributed resources (DR) with electric power systems (EPS).

Purpose
This document provides a uniform standard for interconnection of distributed resources with electric power systems. It provides requirements relevant to the performance, operation, testing, safety considerations, and maintenance of the interconnection.
