International Colloquium organized by the US NC


Evolution of Power System planning to support connection of generation, distributed resources and alternative technologies

The CIGRE International Colloquium on the Evolution of Power System Planning to Support Connection of Generation, Distributed Resources and Alternative Technologies, sponsored by the CIGRE US National Committee (USNC) and Electric Power Research lnstitute (EPRI) will be held November 2-3, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Colloquium is supported by Study Committees Cl, A 1, CS and C6 and focuses on the role of reliability standards and grid codes in defining the technical connection conditions of generation equipment, distributed resource technologies, demand response technologies and storage technologies. Since generation remains connected for decades, it must support the stable operation of the grid not only today, but also in the very different system of the future; more distributed generation, more fluctuating generation such as solar and wind power, smarter and more active distribution, empowered customers and demand response.

The Colloquium will immediately follow the CIGRE US National Committee Grid of the Future Symposium (GOTF), which will be on October 30 - November 1, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
