Inverter-Based Generation Issues Workshop

The ISO has scheduled an onsite workshop on July 24, 2017. This workshop will provide a discussion of the operational challenges associated with high levels of inverter-based generation, as well as an overview of North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC)’s recommendations on essential reliability services to integrate higher levels of renewable resources.

The workshop will also cover NERC’s recent Advisory regarding inverter-based resources that reduce power output during fault conditions on the transmission system. In relation to the advisory, please find NERC's 1,200 MW Fault Induced Solar Photovoltaic Resource Interruption Disturbance Report, which recommends a review of inverter control settings for solar PV resources. NERC has established an Inverter-Based Resource Performance Task Force to address the broader issue of utility-scale inverter-based resources.

RSVP if planning to attend in person at by close of business July 20.

Please submit comments on the presentation materials and workshop discussion to by close of business August 7.
