This standard establishes criteria and requirements for interconnection of distributed resources (DR) with electric power systems (EPS).
This standard 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.
The requirements shall be met at the point of common coupling (PCC), although the devices used to meet these requirements can be located elsewhere. This standard applies to interconnection based on the aggregate rating of all the DR units that are within the Local EPS. The functions of the interconnection system hardware and software that affect the Area EPS are required to meet this standard regardless of their location on the EPS.
The stated specifications and requirements, both technical and
testing, are universally needed for interconnection of DR,
including synchronous machines, induction machines, or power
1 Additional technical requirements and/or tests may be necessary for some limited situations.
