Today’s LiveWire Spotlight article examines the Inverter-Based Resource Workshop held last February 12th and 13th. The technical conference was sponsored by NERC’s Inverter-Based Resource Performance Working Group (IRPWG) and addressed the emerging reliability risks posed by renewables. Industry experts, equipment manufacturers, research institutions, ISOs, and other attendees shared expertise in a cooperative forum on topics ranging from dynamic modeling through relay coordination and Fault performance.

The presentations from the 2019 Inverter-Based Resource Performance and Analysis Workshop are posted on NERC’s website. The ERO will continue to emphasize the sharing of data that greatly reduce the loss of renewable energy resources during a Fault.
