IEEE 1547 Automated Testing Workshop (SunSpec Alliance)

Jan 16 2024

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM PT

Room 25 ABC

This workshop follows the SunSpec Alliance Annual Members Meeting held Tuesday Morning. SunSpec Alliance is offering the following workshop for both SunSpec Alliance Members, and ISNA / ESNA Workshop Passholder Attendees. Additional registration is required. Learn more about the SunSpec meeting HERE.

The SunSpec IEEE 1547 Automated Workshop, a four-hour, hands-on session, is intended for manufacturers of power conversion products (solar inverters, energy storage management systems, and EV chargers) that must comply with IEEE 1547-2018 and the UL 1741 SB standards. 

Through a set of interactive, instructor-led exercises, this workshop will demonstrate how automation can reduce compliance testing time and labor by 80%, accelerate time to market by months, and improve your company’s cybersecurity posture. Workshop, participants will learn:

  • Introduction to IEEE 1547-2018 and UL 1741 SB standards
    • Economic and technical benefits of IEEE 1547-2018 compatible smart inverters
    • Purpose of IEEE 1547-2018, IEEE 1547.1-2020, and UL 1741 SB 
    • Role of automated testing in IEEE 1547-2018 smart inverter development
  • New capabilities of the IEEE 1547-2018 standard
    • Quantitative and parametric differences between IEEE 1547-2018 and the preceding version IEEE 1547-2003 and their effects on testing methodology
    • Purpose and use cases of IEEE 1547-2018 standard protocols (SunSpec Modbus, IEEE 2030.5, and DNP3)
    • Importance of communication protocol testing and certification prior to IEEE 1547 and UL 1741 SB conformance testing
  • Automated testing laboratory set up, configuration, and test execution (hands on)
    • Laboratory equipment requirements and specifications
    • Configuring the automated test environment (creating/loading in product/protocol information conformance statements, creating a test project)
    • Running automated IEEE 1547-2018 automated tests
      • Full sweep
      • Individual tests
    • Analyzing IEEE 1547-2018 test results
      • In process
      • End of test run
    • Generating artifacts and the final test report
  • Other considerations
    • Training your people
    • Working with Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) at your facility (“Witness Testing”)

Please come and learn about new technology developments in the DER industry, engage with the SunSpec ecosystem, acquire important skills, and have some fun. See you there.
