Topics covered by the Reliability Working Group include load modeling, dynamic system modeling, grid codes and interconnection requirements, system disturbances, system interactions, weak grids, low or zero inertia power systems, grid forming converters, and electrical system standards.
Members of the Reliability Working Group are encouraged to interact with one another via Groups.IO, an online discussion platform and community network. The ESIG Resource Library is also a valuable tool for those seeking information on Reliability, as well as other topics.

High Share of Inverter-Based Generation Task Force
Task Force Chair: Julia Matevosyan, ERCOT
Task Force Co-chair: Fred Huang, ERCOT
The objective of this task force (TF) is to develop an understanding of the options for stable operation of future power systems with a very high share of inverter-based generation like wind, solar and storage. The TF will develop a roadmap for making the transition from the power system of today to a future one dominated by inverter-based generation, working with research organizations, OEMs, and system operators to build a consensus. The TF will also develop and maintain a wiki site, keeping track of major initiatives/research and industrial projects related to a high share of inverter-based resources. The wiki is envisioned as a reference source and a single information repository on this topic.
