SatCon Power Inverters Comply with UL 1741

October 29, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

SatCon Technology Corp. (Cambridge, MA) announced that its power inverters for on-site power generation have been determined to be in compliance with the Standard for Inverters, Converters and Controllers for Use in Independent Power Systems, UL 1741, by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. SatCon's power inverters were tested for compliance with standards for alternative energy, and distributed and grid parallel energy generation systems.

"We are beginning to see the implementation of a whole new power system that uses on-site power generation tied to the existing utility grid to provide users with high-quality, reliable power," said David Eisenhaure, SatCon president and CEO. "By meeting the UL 1741 requirements, SatCon's power conditioning systems are well-positioned to become the leading choice for customers interested in creating their own distributed power using fuel cells in conjunction with, or completely separate from, the utility grid. In addition to fuel cell applications, these UL-compliant inverters will be suitable for photovoltaics, microturbines and other on-site power generation systems."
