Standard for Utility-Scale Solar, Storage and Wind Plants

Event Detail

This joint webcast for developers and equipment manufacturers of large-scale solar, wind, and energy storage plants will provide an update on the IEEE SA Ballot of the IEEE P2800, Draft Standard for Interconnection and Interoperability of Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) Interconnecting with Associated Transmission and Sub-Transmission Electric Power Systems. The technical minimum requirements specified in P2800 for the interconnection of large-scale, transmission- and sub-transmission-connected inverter-based resources are important elements in the North American and international framework to maintain the reliability of the bulk power system with increasing amounts of IBRs, including those radially connected via VSC-HVDC facilities to the grid.

The IEEE P2800 working group has recently approved a draft to move towards IEEE SA balloting and the SA ballot pool is expected to be formed in February. This webinar aims to review the purpose and scope of the draft standard along with selected draft requirements; and to provide step-by-step instructions for how to join the ballot group, followed by time for Q&A. More information on P2800 is available here.

The call to join the IEEE SA ballot group closes March 3, 2021. The SA ballot of P2800 follows soon after and is the last opportunity for stakeholders to review and provide suggestions for changes to the draft standard. Instructions to join the SA ballot group are posted here.
