Presented by: Dr. Babak Enayati - Lead Engineer, Network Solutions, National Grid

Thursday, March 24, 2016 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

This webinar will introduce the IEEE 1547 “Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems”. The participants will learn about the status of the standard revision and the recent proposed draft changes to the standard i. e. voltage regulation, response to abnormal system conditions (including voltage and frequency ride through), power quality, etc.

The participants will also learn about the utility concerns/solutions to adopt the revised IEEE 1547 standard.
