This part of IEC 62446 defines the information and documentation required to be handed over to a customer following the installation of a grid connected PV system. It also describes the commissioning tests, inspection criteria and documentation expected to verify the safe installation and correct operation of the system. It can also be used for periodic retesting.
This part of IEC 62446 is written for grid connected PV systems that do not utilize energy storage (e.g. batteries) or hybrid systems.
This part of IEC 62446 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 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 reinspection, maintenance or modifications.
This part of IEC 62446 defines the different test regimes expected for different solar PV system types to ensure that the test regime applied is appropriate to the scale, type and complexity of the system in question.
NOTE This part of IEC 62446 does not address CPV (concentrating PV) systems, however many of the parts may apply.
Modification by replacing the second paragraph with the following and adding the new note at the end of the Clause:
This part of IEC 62446 is written for grid connected PV systems that do not utilize energy storage (e.g. batteries) or hybrid systems. However, many of the clauses may apply.
NOTE The scope of this document is limited to residential and commercial-scale systems, as well as the low-voltage equipment up to the medium voltage transformers in utility-scale systems. The scope does not cover medium voltage equipment.
