universal interoperability for grid-forming inverters


unifi Consortium

To advance grid-forming (GFM)
inverter technology.

what we do

The unifi team brings together leading researchers, industry stakeholders, utilities, and system operators to collaboratively pursue advances in a broad range of GFM tech. unifi will cultivate and foster a culture of engagement and innovation to identify and fill gaps in technologies, business models, standards, and human factors. In particular, unifi will conduct and coordinate research, development, and demonstration, as well as create educational- and workforce-training materials focusing on planning, designing, and operating grids with a high level of GFM Inverter-based Resources (IBRs). Activities will be organized around three thrusts:

  • research & development (R&D)
  • demonstration & commercialization (D&C)
  • outreach & training (O&T)

unifi will stay true to its name and unify timescales of operation and control across spatial scales for IBRs and associated technologies.
