October 2023 Library Update - Australian Standards

The myBIG library is constantly growing with new content.

From Australian Standards to legislation, codes of practice to technical specifications, and everything in between, myBIG holds the most current Building and Construction industry resources.

A new set of Australian Standards, for Solar PV and Battery Systems, has been added to myBIG for October 2023.

Solar PV and Battery Systems Set

The Solar PV and Battery Systems set is a necessary tool for all electricians working on site.

Designers and installers of solar and energy storage systems navigate a complex range of compliance in today’s market.

The Solar PV and Battery Systems set governs the minimum requirements for solar photovoltaic and battery energy storage system installations across Australia.

These standards are essential for a business that specialises in the installation of solar systems.



AS/NZS 4777.1:2016 Grid connection of energy systems via inverters, Part 1: Installation requirements

AS NZS 4777.1 2016 specifies the electrical and general safety installation requirements for inverter energy systems (IES) up to or equal to 200kVA for the injection of electric power to an electrical installation connected to the grid at low voltage.

AS/NZS 5033:2021 Installation and safety requirements for photovoltaic (PV) arrays
AS/NZS 5033:2021 sets out general installation and safety requirements for electrical installations of PV arrays, including d.c. array wiring, electrical protection devices, switching and earthing provisions.

AS/NZS 4509.1:2009 Stand-alone power systems, Part 1: Safety and installation
This Standard sets out safety and installation requirements for stand-alone power systems used for the supply of extra-low (ELV) and/or low voltage (LV) electric power to a single load, or an electrical installation in a single residence or building, or a group of residences or buildings and associated items with switchboards to AS/NZS 3000 requirements.

AS/NZS 5139:2019 Electrical installations - Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment

AS NZS 5139 2019 specifies requirements for general installation and safety requirements for battery energy storage systems (BESSs), where the battery system is installed in a location, such as a dedicated enclosure or room, and is connected with power conversion equipment (PCE) to supply electric power to other parts of an electrical installation.

AS/NZS 4509.2:2010 Stand-alone power systems, Part 2: System design
Provides requirements and guidance for the design of stand-alone power systems with energy storage at extra-low voltage and used for the supply of extra-low and/or low voltage electric power in a domestic situation.

AS/NZS 3000:2018 Electrical installations (known as the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules)
AS NZS 3000 2018 (known as the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules) specifies requirements for the design, construction and verification of electrical installations, including the selection and installation of electrical equipment forming part of such electrical installations; part 1 provides provisions that constitute the minimum regulatory requirements for a safe electrical installation; part 2 provides work methods and installation practices that are ‘deemed to comply’ with the requirements of Part 1.
