Welcome to the IEEE PES EDPG Wind and Solar Power Plant Interconnection and Design Subcommittee!
(formerly known as the “Integration of Renewable Energy into T&D Grids Subcommittee”)
The Wind and Solar Power Plant Interconnection and Design Subcommittee is a subcommittee of the Energy Development and Power Generation Comittee.
The ED&PGC Wind and Solar Power Plant Interconnection and Design Subcommittee deals with all interconnection and design matters related to the grid integration and delivery of transmission- and distribution-connected wind and solar resources. It provides liaison to and cooperates with other committees, subcommittees, working groups and task forces, including standards making groups, in IEEE and other organizations with similar interests. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) Best practices on interconnection performance requirements, testing, and verification of wind and solar plants; (2) Engineering design of and experience related to wind and solar resource interconnection to T&D systems; (3) Safety- and protection-related issues of wind and solar resources interconnected to T&D systems. (4) Technologies related to interconnection such as power electronic conversion, collection systems, and storage. (5) Analytical and design tools. (6)Standards, recommended practices, application guides, and education through panel sessions, special publications and tutorials.
Our approximately 100 members are industry leaders, practitioners, students and academics with a common professional interest in electric power and energy. The Subcommittee meets at least annually at the IEEE PES General Meeting. To join the IEEE and the PES, click here.
