Distributed Energy Resource Benchmark Models for Quasi-Static Time-Series Power Flow Simulations

Study Committee: C6 | WG C6.36 | REF: 906

The rapid evolution of DER technologies and applications poses a challenge when modeling these technologies – including inconsistent terminology as well as multiple representations of specific DER types. This technical brochure documents a DER benchmark model framework and a set of initial benchmark models for quasi-static time-series (QSTS) power flow simulations, which are intended as a common reference to understand and verify the performance of existing models as well as support standardization in industry models.
