An important component of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems is theinverter. The inverter must be suitable for the expected characteristics of the input of the photovoltaic panels and for the expected characteristics of the output of the electricity network. The characteristics of the electric grid in potential markets for Dutch inverter manufacturers can differ from the characteristics of Dutch electric grids. A preliminary study has been carried out to determine the characteristics of relevant power distribution systems and the expected effects of those networks on PV-inverters. It is concluded that the following characteristics need further study: voltage level (nominal voltage and long-lasting deviations of that level); transient overvoltages, harmonic components in the voltage, and direct current component. 5 refs.
