Stay up to date with the latest edition of AS/NZS4777.2, the standard for grid connection of energy systems via inverters, and how these changes will impact engineers working in solar.

AS/NZS4777.2, the standard for Grid connection of energy systems via inverters, Part 2: Inverter requirements, defines the operation and behaviour of grid connected inverters. This applies to professionals working in photovoltaic (PV) system design and installation, and network connection applications.

The standard was updated in December 2020 to reflect changing conditions in the industry and the growing application of PV systems, batteries, and emerging Vehicle to Grid technologies.

With Distribution Network Service Providers set to assess connection applications based on the new standard from December 2021, understanding these updates is critical to meeting requirements.

Delivered by education partners, Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES), this webinar will provide an overview of changes to the standard. An industry expert will step through what the changes mean to various PV technologies, and the impact to engineers working in solar.
