• GE Brilliance™ 1-Megawatt Solar Inverter Earns both UL 1741 and CSA 22.2 No. 107.1-0 Certifications;
• GE One of the Few to Receive Dual Certification for a Large Inverter.

GE’s inverters are based on the power electronics of the company’s 1.5-megawatt (MW) wind turbine, the most widely deployed in its class, and UL certification further recognizes the advanced design of GE’s solar equipment.

GE’s 1-MW Brilliance solar inverter passed a series of tests to become certified under UL 1741 and CSA 22.2 No. 107.1-0. While UL1741 certification is common for 600vdc inverters, GE’s 1-MW solar inverter is one of the first inverters rated for 1000vdc to have achieved this certification. In addition, the unique controls implementation also preserves GE’s exceptional voltage ride-thru performance.

Factors that are tested in the UL process include how the inverter responds to extreme environmental conditions including temperature, as well as voltage and grid fluctuations that the equipment might experience in the field. In fact, GE’s inverters exceeded UL certification tests by demonstrating full reactive power capability and full power operation at extreme temperature and grid conditions.

“As a leading provider of renewable energy technology, we recognize the importance of seamless integration into the electric grid, especially as the need for cleaner energy surges. Receiving UL and CSA certifications for our 1-megawatt Brilliance solar inverter shows that our product conforms to the highest standards in safety and reliability,” said Danielle Merfeld, general manager of GE’s solar business.

UL 1741 is the standard covering solar inverters, converters, controllers and interconnection system equipment for use with distributed energy resources. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is a global, independent, not-for-profit product safety certification organization that has been testing products and writing standards for safety for more than a century.

Solar inverters convert direct-current power generated by solar panels into usable electricity. To ensure that solar power plants stay online during grid disturbances, GE’s Brilliance inverters include control functions that enhance integration. Similar to GE’s wind turbine controls, which have been designed to meet evolving grid codes in the wind industry, GE’s suite of solar plant monitoring and controls can manage voltage in anticipation of future regulations. The Brilliance inverter also comes enabled with SunIQ™, GE’s monitoring and controls platform of grid-friendly features that allow a large-scale solar system to operate similar to a conventional power plant.

In addition to the UL 1741 certification, the Brilliance inverter system utilizes GE’s Mark VIe UCSA Controller, which has been deemed Achilles Level 1 certified.
