REGISTER NOW: Introduction to IEEE 2030.5

QualityLogic’s Senior Vice President of Engineering is hosting 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 free webinar will be an introduction to IEEE 2030.5 and will cover the IEEE 2030.5 and CSIP background, an introduction to IEEE 2030.5 discovery process, function sets, clients and servers, and finally, discuss the road to CA Rule 21 certification. New for this free webinar, Steve will also show IEEE 2030.5 in action with a short demo of our development and certification test tools.

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.


Introduction to OpenADR

QualityLogic continued to share its smart energy communication protocol expertise during a recent 1-hour OpenADR webinar. The following recording of the webinar provides a 40-minute introduction to OpenADR by QualityLogic’s CTO, Jim Zuber, and is followed by a 20-minute Q&A session that discussed OpenADR and how it can most effectively be utilized for DR and DER use cases.

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.
