Testing smart grid devices to promote interoperability

System and device testing is a critical foundation for ensuring interoperability of smart grid deployments. Grid and system balance may hinge upon rigorous testing of technology to meet interoperability requirements.

This white paper aims to help smart grid stakeholders understand the critical role of testing in the decision-making process for new technologies and services, the cost and time-saving benefits of testing, the role of testing in helping to ensure consumer expectations are satisfied, and the different types of testing programs used. This paper can also help smart grid stakeholders establish practices and ask questions that enhance the technical information available for making decisions about product selection.
