What Is IEEE Standard 1547?

Created in 2003, IEEE Standard 1547™ establishes a technical standard for interconnecting distributed energy resources (DER) with electrical power systems (EPSs). Since Standard 1547 was first created, technology has become more sophisticated and the modern electric grid has experienced increased levels of penetration. Due to the increase in DER interconnection applications, there have been ample […]
