SAE International announced revisions to SAE J3072 Standard: Interconnection Requirements for Onboard, Utility-Interactive Inverter Systems and SAE J2847/3 Recommended Practice: Communication for Plug-in Vehicles as a Distributed Energy Source . The updated electrical vehicle charging documents will play a major role in advancing automotive requirements for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) projects. SAE J3072 Standard. SAE J3072 revisions establish requirements for a grid support inverter system function to better align with the significant changes to inverter requirements that were introduced by major revisions to IEEE 1547 and IEEE 1547.1 . With this update, utilities or local jurisdictions can establish procedures for a site to be approved for the interconnection of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) with onboard inverters based partially on testing and certifying SAE J3072 and other required standards. The vehicle manufacturer (VM) or their designated agents will perform the analyses, inspections and tests to ensure that each inverter system […]
