Hi Ken, that question sounds suspiciously like you're a spambot but I'll bite:

> Is there an International Standard for PV Inverters to shut down when tied to the grid?

Yes: From sunset to sunrise unless they're arc-lamp powered Spanish solar panels like these: http://wattsupwiththat.com/201...-insanity-of-greenery/

For Ipayyoursalary: Thanks. However I am seeking info re the international standard for the shut-down time for pv inverters when connected to the local grid. This time is quoted in milliseconds...can you say if there is an International Standard time?

I'm not sure there is a single international standard. Here in the UK, we use G83/1 or its successor G83/2. There's no guarantee that any other country's standards will be the same.

I'd expect European countries will be similar as I believe that this 16A/phase consideration came from some harmonisation agreement.

You could have a word with the guys at SMA who are a significant manufacturer of grid inter-tie inverters for the Euro market. http://www.thepowerstore.com/r...-Zr9wLUCFePHtAodMEcAlw
