USA - Dynapower (www.dynapower.com), a specialist in energy storage inverters, and Intertek (www.intertek.com) announced that Dynapower’s MPS-250 is the first storage-only energy inverter to be confirmed by Intertek to meet the UL 1741 SA draft requirements for a “smart” inverter.
Compliance with this standard ensures that Dynapower’s MPS-250 smart inverter is California Rule 21 and Hawaii Rule 14H compliant through its development of advanced inverter features.
This was achieved by Dynapower through the use of Intertek’s SATELLITE™ Data Acceptance Program, which allows manufacturers to run more efficient compliance programs.
“Dynapower has always been on the forefront of energy storage inverter technology and we are extremely pleased and proud to receive confirmation from Intertek that our MPS-250 inverter meets the UL 1741 SA draft requirements,” said Chip Palombini, sales manager of the energy storage group at Dynapower.
“Working through the Intertek SATELLITE program enabled Dynapower to have full control over the timeline of the compliance process.”
“Intertek is proud to work with global leaders like Dynapower to advance the energy industry through smart inverter functionality,” said Sunny Rai, Vice President of Renewable Energy at Intertek. “This technology enables PV integration and improved grid resiliency, both of which are crucial steps toward developing smart grids and smart cities.”
In addition to the smart inverter features required by the new standard, Dynapower also incorporated Dynamic Transfer as a standard feature into the Generation 2 MPS-250. Dynamic Transfer enables a “backup power” mode of operation for energy storage systems.
