Photovoltaic (PV) Systems - Characteristics of the Utility Interface
|Publication Date:||1 December 2004|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
Scope and object
This International Standard applies to utility-interconnect
The object of this standard is to lay down requirements for interconnection of PV systems to the utility distribution system.
NOTE 1 An inverter with type certification meeting the standards as detailed in this standard should be deemed acceptable for installation without any futher testing.
This standard does not deal with EMC or protection mechanisms against islanding.
NOTE 2 Interface requirements may vary when storage systems are incorporated or when control signals for PV system operation are supplied by the utility.
