International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies


Systems Evaluation Group - Non-conventional Distribution Networks / Microgrids



The scope of SEG 6 is to
Assess aspects of non-conventional distribution networks for applications such as:
- Rural and developing markets that serve potential huge market needs (notably in Asia and Africa) including networks that may be connected in the future to a traditional / interconnected grid.
- Facility or campus grids capable of operating in an isolated mode with respect to a large interconnected grid.
The SEG is requested to closely collaborate with TC 8 and SyC Smart Energy and other microgrid activities in IEC and to provide the SMB with its recommendations on an approach to standardization in this area. The SEG will work in close collaboration with SEG 4 in the area of LVDC.
