Background Information (download full syllabus)

Distributed energy resources (DER) are widely distributed geographically and are intermittent in nature, thus they are difficult to control and dispatch like the more traditional sources of generation.  Large electrical power networks have historically been designed using centralized power generating stations supplying customer loads over interconnected transmission and distribution networks.  Increasing the penetration level of distributed renewable energy sources requires adjustments to the existing operating procedure and design philosophy of large-scale power systems.
