Power conditioner, that is responsible for electric power conversion, is
a critical component used in many renewable energy power generation systems.
Most of the electric power produced by distributed energy resources cannot
directly import to utility network without power conversion. Meanwhile, power
conversion may includes several different types, for example AC/DC, and DC/AC,
which is realized by a variety types of power conditioners in the electric
power system. Currently, many concerns are focused on the operation of these
power conditioners used in distributed energy resources due to the worse
designing may cause the terrible influence on safety and performance
characteristic of distributed energy resources. The power quality and
reliability of interconnected electric power network may be affected as well.
In the view of this, IEEE standards board 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. Based on the IEEE 1547
standard, this paper presents a test system for power conditioners that are used
in distributed energy resources or other renewable energy applications. Some of
the test items that described in IEEE 1547.1 relevant to interconnection issues
can be realized by proposed test system.
