GE announced that its Brilliance™ solar inverter is one of few utility-scale inverters to receive UL certification, an industry standard for safety and performance. GE’s inverters are based on the power electronics of the company’s 1.5MW 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 1MW 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.
