These requirements cover inverters, converters, charge
controllers, and intersystem equipment (ISE) intended for use
in stand-alone (not grid-connected) or utility-interactive

converters and ISE are intended to be operated in parallel
with an electric power system (EPS) to supply power to
For utility-interactive equipment, these requirements are
intended to supplement and be used in conjunction with the
Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with
Electric Power Systems, IEEE 1547, and the Standard for
Conformance Test Procedures for Equipment Interconnecting
Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems, IEEE
These requirements cover AC modules that combine
at-plate photovoltaic modules and inverters to provide AC
output power for stand-alone use or utility-interaction, and
power systems that combine other alternative energy sources
with inverters, converters, charge controllers, and
interconnection system equipment (ISE), in system speci c
These requirements also cover power systems that combine
independent power sources with inverters, converters,
charge controllers, and interconnection system equipment
(ISE) in system speci c combinations.

INVERTERS, CONVERTERS AND
CONTROLLERS FOR USE IN
French President Francois Hollande bestowed
France s highest honour yesterday on three Amer-
icans and a Briton who helped disarm a gun-toting
suspected Islamist militant on a train last week.
"Faced with the evil called terrorism there is a
good, that s humanity. You are the incarnation of
that," Hollande told the four men at a ceremony to
award them the Legion d honneur.
The suspect s lawyer said on Sunday the man,
named by intelligence sources as Ayoub el Khazzani,
26, of Morocco, was "dumbfounded" to be accused
of being an Islamist militant. She said he had told
her he only intended to rob people on the train,
because he was hungry.
Khazzani spent two months in France last year
working for a mobile telephone company but his
contract was cut short because he lacked working
papers, the head of the company said after being
interviewed by police.
"He seemed to be a good person, no problems,
and behaviour beyond reproach," Lycamobile chief
Alain Jochimek told Reuters.
Spencer Stone, a 23-year-old US airman travelling
with two friends on the train from Amsterdam to
Paris on Friday, has told of how he plugged the blood-
spurting wound of another passenger with his fingers
after himself being wounded by the attacker.
"I just stuck two of my fingers in the hole, found
what I thought to be the artery, pushed down and
the bleeding stopped," he said at a news conference
alongside his friends, student Anthony Sadler, 23,
and National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, 22.
After the medals ceremony, Stone and Skarlatos
went to Germany, where Stone was to receive further
treatment at a US Army hospital, said Pentagon
spokesman Jeff Davis.
The man Stone helped, a Franco-American Hol-
lande named as Mark Moogalian, remains hospitalised.
The US ambassador to France, Jane Hartley, said he
was "doing pretty well."
Chris Norman, a 62-year-old British consultant
who lives in France, was also decorated by Hollande
Stone said another man, who is French and whose
name has not been disclosed, "deserves a lot of the
credit" because he was the first one to try to stop
According to Spanish security sources, Khazzani
travelled to France in 2014 and went to Syria. French
security sources said he caught a flight from Berlin
to Istanbul on May 10 this year. Turkey is a preferred
destination for would-be jihadists heading for Syria.
Khazzani is on a French list of around 5,000 people
who are documented as being a potential militant
Islamist threat and was classified as a high risk,
according to a source close the investigation. (Reuters)
