Added Confidence For Your Buyers

QualityLogic works with industry alliances, NRTLs, national labs, and consortiums to design, develop and support test tools for certification programs for smart grid standards.

Smart Energy Market Challenges

The Smart Energy industry has made an impressive start, with standards that promote product interoperability. But deciding on technology standards is only the beginning. You’ll face some daunting challenges:

  • Understanding how to benefit from a standard and ensuring it improves your value-add
  • Training your team to develop, specify and/or acquire products based on specific standards
  • Assessing the maturity of various standards so you can avoid orphaned or obsolete implementations as standards evolve
  • Designing implementation processes to ensure interoperability of products from multiple vendors
  • Accelerating development and deployment of products while ensuring interoperability

However, these challenges can be overcome with the right testing and training from QualityLogic. View the labs that are performing CA Rule 21 CSIP, OpenADR and IEC 61850 certification testing by using QualityLogic’s test tools, and see products that have passed IEEE 2030.5 Conformance Testing.

OpenEGrid reached an important milestone in Sep 2019 when the industry’s first certified IEEE 2030.5 CSIP compliant OpenEGrid Gateway was announced and QualityLogic had been instrumental in providing us a test platform in realizing this goal.

Webinars


QualityLogic Webinar: Introduction to IEEE 2030.5

On August 26, 2020, QualityLogic’s Senior Vice President of Engineering hosted a 1-hour webinar: Introduction to IEEE 2030.5. Steve has been involved with IEEE 2030.5 since 2010 and has taught thousands of people around the globe on IEEE 2030.5. He has played a key role in assisting many companies in understanding CSIP requirements, CALSSA Testing Pathway, and Phase 3, Functions 2 and 3, and helping companies on their road to getting certified.

This recorded webinar also includes a demonstration of IEEE 2030.5 using the QualityLogic test tools.

QualityLogic Webinar: Selecting the Right Protocol
A critical issue for utilities planning to integrate DER resources into grid operations is how to manage these resources. A major challenge is designing and implementing an interoperable eco-system of utility management systems (DERMS), aggregators and gateways and end-devices themselves. It would be ideal to create a “plug-and-play” eco-system to speed deployment, lower costs and improve performance of DERs. QualityLogic has been working with the standard grid-edge communications protocols (OpenADR, IEEE 2030.5, IEC 61850, DNP3, etc) for the past 10 years. These standards are a key component in creating the desired eco-system of vendors and products.

As the leading developer of the test tools and training for implementing grid-edge protocols, we have a unique perspective on this challenge and we share that information during this webinar.

Preventing DER Chaos

Trying to understand which protocol – OpenADR, DNP3, IEEE 2030.5, IEC 61850 – is right for your application?

Developing and supporting test tools for DER protocols provides us an unparalleled knowledge of both the technologies and eco-systems working with the technologies.

So we thought we’d put that knowledge into a protocol selection guide.
