The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) on April 21, 2020 has issued the draft standard on technical requirements for Photovoltaic Grid Tie Inverters to be connected to the Utility Grid in India.

This standard provides interconnection technical specifications and requirements along with environmental test specifications and requirements applicable for Utility Interconnected Inverters used in Photovoltaic Power Systems.

The main objective of this standard is to lay down requirements for interconnection of PV systems or inverters to the utility distribution system, and to provide a test procedure to evaluate utility-interconnected photovoltaic (PV) power systems operating in parallel with the utility and utilizing static (solid-state) non-islanding inverters for the conversion of DC to AC.

This standard applies to interconnection with the low-voltage and medium-voltage utility distribution system.

MNRE invites comments and inputs from stakeholders on the draft standard by April 30, 2020 at email: [email protected].
