Utility-Interconnected Photovoltaic Inverters

IS Standard : IS 16221 (Part 2) : 2015 & IS 16169 : 2014

Utility-interconnected photovoltaic inverters, also known as grid-tied inverters, are a critical component of grid-connected solar power systems. These inverters play a pivotal role in converting the direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity suitable for use in homes or to feed into the electrical grid. Unlike off-grid solar systems that rely on energy storage, utility-interconnected inverters are designed to work in conjunction with the existing utility grid.

They ensure a seamless and efficient integration of solar power into the grid, allowing excess electricity to be fed back to the utility in a process known as net metering or to offset energy consumption when solar generation is insufficient. These inverters also provide safety mechanisms to disconnect from the grid in the event of a power outage, preventing the backflow of electricity to protect utility workers.

IS 16221 (Part 2):2015 and IS 16169:2014 are important standards for manufacturers of utility-interconnected photovoltaic inverters. IS 16221 (Part 2) and IS 16169 set the requirements for the design, construction, and testing of utility-interconnected photovoltaic inverters. Manufacturers who adhere to these standards can produce dependable and durable inverters. Complying with these standards is a prerequisite for certification and regulatory approval, allowing manufacturers to market their inverters in different regions.

Note: Manufacturers of utility-interconnected photovoltaic inverters are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.

BIS/CRS Registration ensures that these inverters, responsible for converting direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels into usable alternating current (AC) for grid-connected applications, adhere to rigorous quality and safety standards. It also plays a pivotal role in promoting the growth of solar energy in India, fostering competition, innovation, and adherence to stringent standards, which are essential for the sustained expansion of the solar power sector and the reliability of power generation and distribution.


About BIS/CRS Registration

Bureau of Indian Standards is a statutory body in India responsible for the formulation and implementation of standards to ensure the quality and safety of various products. Under the BIS framework, there exists a scheme called CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme), which mandates that certain categories of products must undergo mandatory registration and comply with specified quality and safety standards before they can be sold in the Indian market. This scheme was established in 2012 and has since played a crucial role in enhancing product quality and safety in India by ensuring that items such as electronics, appliances and automotive components meet the necessary standards before they reach consumers. BIS/CRS Registration is vital for market access, as it is a legal requirement for selling the product in India. Failure to obtain this registration can result in confiscation of goods and legal consequences. Therefore, manufacturers and importers need to be diligent in ensuring their products meet the necessary criteria.
