Overview of EPRI’s Distributed Energy Resources Simulation Tool for Emulating Smart Solar Inverters and Energy Storage Systems on Communication Networks: An Overview of EPRI’s Distributed Energy Resource Simulator
EPRI’s Distributed Energy Resources Simulator emulates smart solar inverters or energy storage systems with communications capabilities and can be used to evaluate the performance of communications protocols in control systems. This report summarizes this tool and its features.
This white paper discusses various aspects of smart inverters, including voltage regulation, technical application, communication and control needs, and economic considerations.
Smart Grid Ready Photovoltaic (PV) Inverters with Utility Communication: Results from Field Demonstrations
This report discusses the results of a four-year EPRI effort under the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative to develop, lab-test, model, deploy, and field-test smart inverters with grid-support capabilities.
