Inverter-Based Resource Performance Task Force

The purpose of the Inverter-Based Resource Performance Task Force (IRPTF) is to explore the performance characteristics of utility-scale inverter-based resources (e.g., solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind power resources) directly connected to the bulk power system (BPS). This task force will build off of the experience and lessons learned from the ad hoc task force created to investigate the loss of solar PV resources during the Blue Cut Fire event and other fault-induced solar PV resource loss events. The joint task force will address many of the recommendations from the Blue Cut Fire Disturbance Report, including additional system analysis, modeling, and review of inverter behavior under abnormal system conditions. Recommended performance characteristics will be developed along with other recommendations related to inverter-based resource performance, analysis, and modeling. The technical materials are intended to support the utility industry, Generator Owners with inverter-based resources, and equipment manufacturers by clearly articulating recommended performance characteristics, ensuring reliability through detailed system studies, and ensuring dynamic modeling capability and practices that support BPS reliability.
