OUR SOFTWARE AND REFERENCE 
DESIGN SOLUTIONS

SunSpec provides software tools and reference designs to enable SunSpec Alliance Members and partners to rapidly develop and deploy SunSpec Certified solutions in the field. Available software and reference design solutions include:

Specifications for Review

IEEE 2030.5 V2G AC PROFILE

In June, 2022, the SunSpec IEEE 2030.5 / SAE J3072 EV Charging Profile Work Group promoted its IEEE 2030.5 / V2G AC Profile from DRAFT to TEST. Please download the document, implement the profile, and submit your comments. 

By enabling bi-directional vehicle-to-grid (V2G) communication, this profile serves to assist EVSE and PEV manufacturers, operators, and system integrators to implement the SAE J3072 requirements using the IEEE 2030.5 protocol.

Sunspec Modbus

SunSpec Modbus is SunSpec’s foundational technology and a requirement specified in the IEEE 1547 standard. Here you will find information and tools to enable development of IEEE 1547 and CA Rule 21 communication interfaces to DER equipment.

SunSpec Modbus for 1547

SunSpec Modbus, a default communication and interoperability standard specified in IEEE 1547-2018, enables Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and smart inverters to be controlled and monitored by operators, thus enhancing the value of DER and improving grid health. The SunSpec Modbus for IEEE 1547 interface is fully interoperable with IEEE 2030.5 and IEEE 1815, the other communication interfaces identified in IEEE 1547-2018.

Certifying your product to the SunSpec Modbus for IEEE 1547 standard is the simplest and most important step you can take to reduce the time needed for IEEE 1547.1-2020 clause 6 interoperability testing and for achieving UL 1741 SB compliance.

SUNSPEC RAPID SHUTDOWN

The SunSpec Certified program for Rapid Shutdown verifies compliance to the SunSpec Communication Signal for Rapid Shutdown Functional Specification to meet the requirement established by National Electrical Code(NEC) 2017. PV module-level power control and safty (“rapid shutdown”) is required in 24 states starting in January 2019 and will affect millions of PV panels and all solar inverters. This standard is tested using UL1741 SA criteria.

 

SUNSPEC 2030.5/CSIP

California Rule 21 requires that, by default, Distributed Energy Resources within investor owned Utilities(IOS) must utilize the IEEE 2030.5-2018 networking standard in the manner described in the SunSpec Common Smart Inverter Profile(CSIP). The SunSpec Certified program for 2030.5/CSIP verifies compliance with the IEEE 2030.5-2018 networking standard and SunSpec CSIP.

Applicable Components

IEEE™ 2030.5 clients, gateways, aggregators and servers. Certification is applicable to software running on embedded devices and cloud services alike.

Scope

  • Four scenarios
  • Aggregator configuration is clear preference
  • Gateway/EMS configurations include certain network segments that are out of scope
