Site suitability for assessment of wind farms

Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. Turbine classes are determined by three parameters – the average wind speed, extreme year gust, and turbulence. Wind turbine 64100-1 Vestas. Wind turbines are capital intensive, and are usually purchased before they are being erected and commissioned.

Windfarm assessment tool – Site suitability for assessment of wind farms – WAsP – WAsP

Because the fatigue loads of a number of major components in a wind turbine are mainly caused by turbulence, the knowledge of how turbulent a site is of crucial importance. This is the definition in IEC edition 2. In flat terrain the wind speed increases logarithmically with height.


Retrieved 18 March The extreme wind speeds are based on the 3 second average wind speed. Some of these idc provide technical conditions verifiable by an independent, third partyand as such are necessary in order to make business agreements so wind turbines can be financed and erected.

The common set of standards sometimes replace the various national standards, forming a basis for global certification. Small wind turbines are defined as being of up to m 2 swept area and a somewhat simplified IEC standard addresses these.

March Learn 61400-1 and when to remove this template message. Retrieved 14 March Retrieved from ” https: Wind classes determine which turbine is suitable for the normal wind conditions of a particular site.

The standard concerns most aspects of the turbine life from site conditions before construction, to turbine components being tested, [1] assembled and operated. Retrieved 7 October National Renewable Energy Laboratory participates in IEC standards development work, [3] [6] and tests equipment according to these standards.

Turbulence intensity quantifies how much the wind varies typically within 10 minutes. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. Views Read Edit View history. During the construction and design phase assumptions are made about the wind climate that the wind turbines iex be exposed to.


Basic Aspects” Suzlon Energy. In Canada, the oec national standards were outdated and impeded the wind industry, and they were updated and harmonized with by the Canadian Standards Association with several modifications.
