Scope and object

This International Standard defines the minimal information and documentation required to be handed over to a customer following the installation of a grid connected PV system. This standard also describes the minimum commissioning tests, inspection criteria and documentation expected to verify the safe installation and correct operation of the system. The document can also be used for periodic retesting.

This standard is written for grid connected PV systems only and not for AC module systems or systems that utilize energy storage (e.g. batteries) or hybrid systems.

NOTE It is expected that additional information and commissioning tests will be required in some circumstances, e.g. for large commercial installations.

This standard is for use by system designers and installers of grid connected solar PV systems as a template to provide effective documentation to a customer. By detailing the expected minimum commissioning tests and inspection criteria, it is also intended to assist in the verification / inspection of a grid connected PV system after installation and for subsequent re-inspection, maintenance or modifications.
