  2. 2. OVERVIEW• IEEE 1547 series are standards for interconnecting distribution resources with electric power systems which helps utilities tap surplus electricity from alternative sources.• The standard establishes technical requirements for electric power systems interconnecting with distributed generators such as fuel cells, photovoltaic, micro-turbine, reciprocating engines, wind generators, large turbines, and other local generators. 2
  3. 3. OVERVIEW (2)• These standards was developed under IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee 21 (SCC21) on Fuel Cells, Photovoltaic, Dispersed Generation, and Energy Storage.• The development of 1547 has included arduous debate and scrutiny by hundreds of dedicated and experienced members of IEEE. 3

Power only flows from utility to load.• Microgrid or Intentional Island: Aggregation of loads and sources capable of operating either in parallel with or to end users. Depending on configuration, power flows only within microgrid or can export power to utility. Independent from a larger electric grid, while providing continuous power.• Networked Distribution System w/ 2-way power flow: Distribution in which the secondaries of the distribution transformers are connected in a grid, typically energized at the customers’ utilization voltage, to serve multiple loads. 18

  27. 27. AREA OF APPLICATIONThe following diagrams show seven common types of DR applications that requiresinterconnection systems using IEEE 1547 standard Reciprocating engine/combustion turbine used for emergency/backup power This is the most common type of DR interconnection system and, in case of failure (i.e., of the area EPS), an automatic transfer switch breaks the connection with the area EPS and then makes the connection with the DR. 27
  28. 28. • Reciprocating engine/combustion turbine used for premium powerIn this case, DR is used to provide premium power, which is free of power-qualityproblems such as frequency variations, voltage transients, dips, and surges. Power ofsuch quality is not available directly from the area EPS. Thus, requires auxiliary power-conditioning equipment (including uninterruptible power supplies) and emergency orstandby power. A transfer switch or paralleling switchgear is also required. 28
  29. 29.  Reciprocating engine/combustion turbine used as a dispatchable peakerSome interconnection equipment manufacturers have designed systems in which backupsystems can be converted to allow them to be dispatchable. This system allows the DRowner or the area EPS operator to run the unit on demand. Currently, most dispatchablesystems use a local area EPS remote terminal unit to communicate to the DR. 29
  30. 30.  Microturbine used for prime power, as a peaking unit, or for power export.Most micro-turbines use inverter-based interconnection systems. This unit employs theuse of software algorithms to provide functions such as protective relaying. 30
  31. 31.  Fuel cell with inverterMost fuel cells are used to produce premium power and use inverter-basedinterconnection systems. These units use software algorithms to provide functions suchas protective relaying. 31
  32. 32.  PV system with inverterSmall PV systems use inverter-based interconnection systems, and some state public utilitycommissions require utilities to allow for net-metering systems. 32
  33. 33.  Wind turbine with generatorAlthough, large wind turbines and multiple-wind turbine “wind farms” do not fit thedefinition of DR because they are directly connected to the transmission system via adedicated substation or portion of a transmission substation. They are more like central-station power plants. Smaller wind turbines typically use inverters. Figure shows a windturbine system with net metering. 33
