IEEE 1547.1 Training Workshop

IEEE 1547-2018 and 1547.1-2020 introduce significant new testing and certification challenges for the inverter industry. These include enhanced Type testing and Interoperability testing. The testing procedures are further elaborated in UL 1741 Edition 3 (September 2021).

One of the most significant new testing challenges is the requirement to use one of the standard protocols specified in IEEE 1547-2018 to conduct Interoperability testing. For many UL 1741 testers, these protocols are new and will require a combination of knowledge and tools to conduct the required UL 1741 SB testing.

To help meet these challenges, QualityLogic offers a IEEE 1547.1 Testing Workshop ideal for those who need to learn enough about IEEE 1547.1 / UL 1741 SB to conduct the certification testing. The class covers the three standards (IEEE 2030.5, SunSpec Modbus, and DNP3), the Interop and Type tests defined in IEEE 1547.1 and UL 1741 SB, and training on automating the development and certification testing to achieve UL 1741 SB certification.

The workshop includes demonstrations of the QualityLogic Test Tools to train participants on how to use the tools to conduct 1547.1/UL 1741SB testing for Type and Interop tests, manage the test equipment (grid/DC simulators, data collection system), and capture the test logs to support pass/fail analysis. Participants can use the knowledge from this training to use QualityLogic’s 1547.1 test tool to perform automated or manual testing on their target smart inverter device.

Steve did an amazing job presenting this in a professional manner while keeping it light hearted and encouraging. We had a lot of questions that probably seemed like simple issues to him, but he took the time to explain in detail every solution. (And time to verify we understood!)
