With evolving technology in the power production industry, safety requirements are evolving as well. Are you prepared for the changes associated with power production controllers? How are you keeping your product development cycle agile to account for new safety requirements? How will the newly published UL 6200 Standard change your product evaluations and what do you need to consider differently as a product developer? It comes down to two main additions: software analysis and independent grid/utility interaction requirements. While there are many other nuances and slight differences to the standard, these two are important for your bigger picture of planning.
Learning objectives (or key points)
- Background for updated safety requirements for power production controllers
- How software analysis impacts a controller safety evaluation and how to prepare
- Highlights of the IEEE 1547 evaluation for controllers that are grid connected
