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."
IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric
This standard establishes criteria
and requirements for interconnection of distributed
resources (DR) with electric power systems (EPS).
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.
