Control measure – Isolate power at inverter

Control Measure Knowledge

One or more DC isolation switches should be provided to isolate the photovoltaic array from the inverter. Isolation should be carried out at the point closest to the panels. Anywhere between the DC isolation point(s) and the panels will remain live.

For further information about the components of photovoltaic systems, refer to BRE’s Fire safety and solar electric/photovoltaic systems webpage.
