Essential maintenance work will be carried out on BSI Shop over the weekend of 12 and 13 June 2021. BSI Shop will be operational during this time but you might experience slowness for a very brief period of time. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

PD IEC/TS 62786:2017

Distributed energy resources connection with the grid

Status : Current   Published : June 2017



IEC TS 62786:2017(E) provides principles and technical requirements for distributed energy resources (DERs) connected to the distribution network. It applies to the planning, design, operation and connection of DERs to distribution networks. It includes general requirements, connection scheme, choice of switchgear, normal operating range, immunity to disturbances, active power response to frequency deviation, reactive power response to voltage variations and voltage changes, EMC and power quality, interface protection, connection and start to generate electrical power, active power management, monitoring, control and communication, and conformance tests.

This document specifies interface requirements for connection of generating plants with the distribution network operating at a nominal frequency of 50 Hz or 60 Hz.

DERs include distributed generation and permanently connected electrical energy storage in the form of synchronous generators, asynchronous generators, converters, etc., connected to the medium voltage (MV) or low voltage (LV) distribution network.
