Due to the passage of IEEE 1547-2018 commencing 2021, many Distributed Energy Resources, including solar PV, energy storage systems, and natural gas/diesel generators, will be required to communicate with utilities and system operators using communication protocols specified by the IEEE 2030.5-2018 standard. IEEE 2030.5 is a new standard that incorporates TCP/IP, HTTPS, RESTful web services, and is highly optimized to the needs of the energy generators and the utilities and system operators who manage these systems.
Accordingly, DER network design companies and electrical utilities are required to have network engineers and architects who know how to configure, customize, and apply IEEE 2030.5 technology in secure and reliable manner.
This course will provide individuals wishing to become network engineers and architects in the energy business with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to design, configure, and operate DER networks that support rooftop, commercial, and utility-scale energy generation systems.
