Distributed Energy Resources: Interconnection Impact Studies Support Successful DER Integration
Distributed energy resources (DER) have become an integral part of the energy system as consumers, developers, and utilities incorporate smaller power sources such as renewable energy, energy storage systems, or traditional generation into the electric power system. While DER have become an integral part of the typical energy portfolio, DER interconnection can negatively impact thermal loading, voltage regulation and protection. Other potential concerns include voltage flicker, risk of islanding and load rejection overvoltage. Leidos engineers Trishia Swayne, Urmil Patel, and Sridhar Chouhan discuss how DER interconnection impact studies can determine potential issues and identify mitigation strategies that allow for successful integration.
