Quality control for stand-alone inverters: Technical standard and certification tests

The proposal document �Quality control for stand-alone inverters: Technical Standard and certification tests� is intended to provide a quality reference for procurement specification issued by National Governments, donors and investors.

In addition, it is intended to be useful as a design guideline for manufacturers and installers. It should be understood as a follow-up of the �Universal Technical Standard for Solar Home Systems�, which applies exclusively to entirely DC SHS. Besides, this standard for inverters is restricted to only deal with the AC part, i.e., inverter and AC load.

The document contains a discussion of inverter performance at the lights of the following criteria: reliability, safety, energy performance, user friendliness, and installation and maintenance.

The document was circulated among external experts in the subject, but we are receiving few comments. There are not many people with enough skill, who is disposed to review it in depth.
