“IEEE P2030.10™ for DC Microgrids for Rural and Remote Electricity Access Applications” Working Group

The IEEE 2030.10 standard is to address the needs of the electrical power industry to provide safe and economic access to electricity in areas of developed and developing counties where centralized electric power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure does not exist. Off-grid microgrid applications can provide power where infrastructures costs or other issues are prohibitive for a fully connected system. This standard provides the framework to allow for deployment of distributed generation, storage and use of electricity based on identified requirements and existing technology. Further, it has the goal of facilitating the use of clean renewable generation of electricity in these applications. This standard covers the design, operations, and maintenance of a dc microgrid for rural or remote applications. The standard further provides requirements for providing low voltage dc and ac power to off-grid loads.
