Publications of the EC FP6 DERlab Network of Excellence (2005-2011):

“European White Book on Real-Time Power-Hardware-in-the-Loop testing”Reference document on the future of testing of electrical power equipment with specific focus on the emerging hardware-in-the-loop activities and applications. It provides an outlook of how this powerful tool can be utilised to support the development, testing and validation of specifically DER equipment. DERlab Report No. R- 005.0. Date: 2012-10. ISBN: 978-3-943517-01-9.
“Electromagnetic Compatability for Distributed Energy Resources” This Guide describes the EMC conformity assessment procedures in the European Union for DER equipment, and revises the emission and immunity requirements established by many national and international standards and regulations. DERlab Report No. R- 002.0. Date: 2012-02. ISBN: 978-3-943517-05-7.
“European White Book on Grid-Connected Storage”This White Book is a contribution for better deployment of storage systems as a whole as seen from the grid (including converters) rather than any individual device or application. The Book does not only tackle complex technical issues such as requirements on interconnections, or test procedures for selecting a suitable storage technology, but presents also clarifications on tariff structures and other economic aspects. DERlab Report No. R- 003.0. Date: 2012-02. ISBN: 978-3-943517-00-2.
“International White Book on DER Protection: Review and Testing Procedures”This White Book provides an insight into the issues surrounding the impact of increasing levels of DER on the generator and network protection and the resulting necessary improvements in protection testing practices. DERlab Report No. R-004.0. Date: 2012-02. ISBN: 978-3-943517-02-6.
“Requirements to Testing of Power System Services Provided by DER Units”The book discusses the power system services that may be provided from DER units and the related methods to test the services actually provided, both at component level and at system level. DERlab Report No. R-006.0. Date: 2012-04. ISBN: 978-3-943517-04-0.
“International White Book on the Grid Integration of Static Converters” This white book deals with the future requirements for static converters that can contribute actively to a smart operation of the power systems considering in particular ancillary services, disturbed network conditions, and control and communication requirements. This working paper was initiated by DERlab and is a result of a series of workshops that was open to experts in the field. Project Deliverable, June 2009
“Key needs, priorities and framework for the development of a common European pre-standard on DER interconnection”Including a proposed draft structure for a European standard for interconnection of distributed energy resources (EDIS), Project Deliverable, September 2008
“Electromagnetic Compatability for Distributed Energy Resources (working paper 2007)”DERlab Guide Document supporting the EMC standardisation for low frequency phenomena, IEC/ SC77A: PT61000-3-15, Working Paper, January 2007.
