A Smarter Way to Interconnect Distributed Energy Resources

Date held: February 13, 2019
Duration: 60 min

Distributed generation and the adoption of microgrids are growing at a rapid pace. Utilities and power producers need an easier and more cost-effective way to interconnect these resources with the power system.

This webinar addresses a new way to create safe and reliable interties for distributed energy resources (DERs) using the SEL-651R Advanced Recloser Control. During the webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • IEEE 1547-2018 intertie tripping requirements.
  • Improving safety by enforcing interconnection requirements.
  • Reducing power quality impact and equipment damage risk using enhanced synchronization techniques.
  • Fast local islanding detection methods.
  • Simplicity and low cost of the SEL-651R point of common coupling (PCC) solution.
