Lawrence, MA - July 11, 2017 - Yaskawa - Solectria Solar, the leading U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that their PVI 50 TL and PVI 60 TL inverters are now compliant with UL1741 SA.


Lawrence, MA - July 11, 2017 - Yaskawa - Solectria Solar, the leading U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that their PVI 50 TL and PVI 60 TL inverters are now compliant with UL1741 SA.

Achieving compliance two months prior to the deadline demonstrates Yaskawa - Solectria Solar's dedication to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and innovation.

"We are committed to providing grid support utility interactive inverters to meet our Nation's needs to ensure a stable grid," said Miles Russell, Director of Product Management. "Yaskawa - Solectria Solar is continuously working to lead the market with the highest quality and reliability, while keeping up with the latest requirements."

Rule 21 describes newly defined needs by utilities for grid stabilization as PV generation in California continues to grow. The Rule describes interconnection, operating and metering requirements for inverters to allow the grid to accept increased capacity as California adds more GWs to its grid. Rule 21 will allow inverters to actively interact with the grid and contribute to system-wide stability and reliability. UL1741 SA prescribes testing methods to qualify smart inverters for compliance with Rule 21.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
