|Wind turbine generator systems – Part 13: Measurement of mechanical loads
|TC 88 - WIND ENERGY GENERATION SYSTEMS
IEC 61400-13:2015+A1:2021 describes the measurement of fundamental structural loads on wind turbines for the purpose of the load simulation model validation. The standard prescribes the requirements and recommendations for site selection, signal selection, data acquisition, calibration, data verification, measurement load cases, capture matrix, post-processing, uncertainty determination and reporting. Informative annexes are also provided to improve understanding of testing methods. This standard replaces IEC TS 61400-13 published in 2001; it constitutes a technical revision and transition from technical specification to International Standard.
