Ensure the operational reliability of your PV power plant
Photovoltaic (PV) power plants need to comply with strict guidelines, regulations and safety standards. After the PV power plant has been constructed, owners and operators have to ensure the operational reliability of the plant and that it fulfils the design, regulations and specifications as well as technical and safety standards before they make the final payment.
TÜV SÜD’s testing and inspection services are regarded by both commercial and private customers as a guarantee of safety and reliability. Our engineering experts offer proven expertise and longstanding hands-on experience.
Final acceptance installation inspection
TÜV SÜD experts inspect the plant to check for compliance with the international standard IEC 62446.
We check that test protocols are available for measurement, data treatment and necessary corrections according to standards.
Visual inspection of facilities
Our experts perform visual inspections of the generator field, including the support structure, modules, mounting and cabling.
Labelling and markings
We verify that all required system and equipment labels, markings and placards are correct and in the proper locations. This includes ensuring that all equipment is properly listed, identified and labelled, suitable for the conditions of use, and installed according to the listed product instructions.
All electrical equipment should be marked with the manufacturer's identification and applicable specifications and ratings.
While not a standard part of the final acceptance test, at the customer's request we provide independent electrical measurement, including calculating circuit voltages and currents to verify that the PV array and system operating parameters are within specifications.
Our inspection reports list results, name, date of inspection and personnel.
