IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric
NOTICE: On May 17-18, 2012 an IEEE SCC21 1547 workshop was held to get industry feedback on potential changes to this standard. On July 11, 2012 an SCC21 executive teleconference
was held and it was unaimously agreed upon to establish an IEEE PAR (project authorization request) as an amendment (limited) to address three topics for change 1) voltage regulation, 2) voltage ride-through, and 3) frequency ride-through.
See IEEE P1547a Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources With Electric Power Systems -- Amendment 1 for more information
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.
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.
