AEG Power Solutions Receives UL 1741 Certification for Protect PV.500-UL 1000V Solar Inverter

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

AEG Power Solutions' (AEG PS) Protect PV.500-UL is one of the market's select few 1000V solar inverter units to receive certification for meeting product safety standards for connection to the United States power grid. With 17 years of experience in the field of photovoltaic testing and certification, TUV Rheinland of North America tested and certified the Protect PV.500-UL as outlined in the UL 1741 standard for solar inverter equipment.

"It was important for us to not only test to UL 1741, but also to obtain full certification from a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory," explained Juergen Schiele, solar research and development director at AEG PS. "We modified our field-proven product to incorporate UL components and space requirements and performed rigorous tests further demonstrating our commitment to safety and quality for the products we offer globally."

The high-efficiency, high-reliability inverter is ideally suited for utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) applications. The Protect PV.500-UL inverter boasts an efficiency greater than 98 percent which exceeds expectations for its power class. It also incorporates grid management features that can adapt to the unique requirements of the utility. With four unique ways to provide reactive power control, adjustable settings for Low Voltage Ride Through, provisional ramp parameters for start and stop operations and remote power control, the inverter's flexibility is unmatched.

A key feature of the PV product line is its power stack with advance-design measuring and control technolog enabling DC input voltages of up to 1000 VDC. In addition to savings on DC wiring and combiner boxes as a result of the higher DC input voltage, the UL-certified Protect PV.500-UL meets utility code requirements and facilitates Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) approval.


"Two major benefits of achieving this certification are that developers can now use a 1000V DC unit with certainty that AHJs will approve the inverter, and investors can be assured of the safety and quality," said Kaivon Mortazavi, vice president of North America for AEG PS. "It also re-enforces our credibility and positions us strongly in the U.S. solar market."

The Protect PV.500 products are also available as part of a fully integrated 1 MW equipment shelter with two Protect PV.500 inverters, communications equipment, MV transformer and switchgear.

"We can now address the U.S. market with a fully certified inverter. Our strategy is to compensate for solar market contractions in Europe by establishing ourselves in growth regions such as Eastern Europe, India, Africa and North America. That's why we recently opened our facility in South Africa, and that's also why this certification is another important step for our company," explains Horst Kayser, CEO of AEG PS.
