GRID CONNECTED PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SYSTEM DOCUMENTATION,
COMMISSIONING TESTS AND INSPECTION
FOREWORD
1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising
all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote
international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To
this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,
Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as IEC
Publication(s)). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested
in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and nongovernmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely
with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by
agreement between the two organizations.
2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international
consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all
interested IEC National Committees.
3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National
Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC
Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any
misinterpretation by any end user.
4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications
transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence
between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in
the latter.
5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any
equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.
6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.
7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and
members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or
other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and
expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC
Publications.
8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is
indispensable for the correct application of this publication.
9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of
patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62446 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 82: Solar
photovoltaic energy systems.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS

Report on voting

82/558A/FDIS

INTRODUCTION
Grid connected PV systems are expected to have a lifetime of decades, with maintenance or
modifications likely at some point over this period. Building or electrical works in the vicinity of
the PV array are very likely, for example roof works adjacent to the array or modifications
(structural or electrical) to a home that has a PV system. The ownership of a system may also
change over time, particularly for systems mounted on buildings. Only by the provision of
adequate documentation at the outset can the long term performance and safety of the PV
system and works, on or adjacent to the PV system, be ensured.
This standard is split into 2 parts:

System documentation requirements (Clause 4) This clause details the information


that shall be provided, as a minimum, within the documentation provided to the customer
following the installation of a grid connected PV system.

Verification (Clause 5) This clause provides the information expected to be provided


following initial (or periodic) verification of an installed system. It includes requirements for
inspection and testing.

GRID CONNECTED PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS


MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SYSTEM DOCUMENTATION,
COMMISSIONING TESTS AND INSPECTION

Scope and object

This International Standard defines the minimal information and documentation required to be
handed over to a customer following the installation of a grid connected PV system. This
standard also describes the minimum commissioning tests, inspection criteria and
documentation expected to verify the safe installation and correct operation of the system.
The document can also be used for periodic retesting.
This standard is written for grid connected PV systems only and not for AC module systems or
systems that utilize energy storage (e.g. batteries) or hybrid systems.
NOTE It is expected that additional information and commissioning tests will be required in some circumstances,
e.g. for large commercial installations.

This standard is for use by system designers and installers of grid connected solar PV
systems as a template to provide effective documentation to a customer. By detailing the
expected minimum commissioning tests and inspection criteria, it is also intended to assist in
the verification / inspection of a grid connected PV system after installation and for
subsequent re-inspection, maintenance or modifications.

Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this standard. For
dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of

Les systmes PV connects au rseau sont destins avoir une dure de vie de plusieurs
dcennies, avec des oprations de maintenance et de modifications ventuelles un moment
donn au cours de cette priode. Des constructions ou des travaux dlectricit au voisinage
du panneau PV sont trs probables, par exemple, des travaux sur les toits adjacents au
panneau ou des modifications (structurelles ou lectriques) au niveau dun logement qui
comporte un systme PV. Le droit de proprit dun systme peut galement changer avec le
temps, en particulier pour des systmes monts sur des btiments. Seule la fourniture dune
documentation approprie ds le dbut peut assurer la performance et la scurit long
terme du systme PV et des travaux sur le systme PV ou adjacents celui-ci.
La prsente Norme est divise en 2 parties:
