What exactly is meant by the term regulator in PVsyst? Are the inverters included in this term?

The exact term should be "Controller" indeed. I kept the term "Regulator" (from french) for historical reasons up to now.

The functions of this device are:
- management of the battery: cut the PV array when full, cut the load when empty.
- eventually perform power management (MPPT or DC-DC controller).

The inverter for delivering AC power to the user is not comprised in this device, and is not defined in PVsyst in the present time.
The PVsyst load definition is specified in terms of energy needs. If you are using an inverter, you should take its efficiency and stand-by consumption into account externally.
