Standards for Connecting DER to Distribution Systems

Interconnection standards for DER (Distributed Energy Resources) connecting to utility transmission and distribution systems have evolved and will continue to change in the coming decades.  DER includes IBR (inverter-based resources), such as solar PV, battery energy storage, and V2G (vehicle-to-grid), but also synchronous machine-based generation and other types of generation.
