Retrieved 14 March Depending on the load case, the wind 611400-1 with the turbine is either deterministic or a pseudo-random wind field with realistic turbulence characteristics. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise 6140-1.
Normally the wind speed increases with increasing height. March Learn how and when to remove this template message. Aeroelastic simulations are processed for all IEC load cases, and turbine safety is verified for each of the deterministic load cases.
Material damage has a highly non-linearly relation to load uec and thus to turbulence intensity, so a few situations with extreme turbulence may cause most of the fatigue damage.
Unlike the NTM turbulence model, site-specific turbulence usually depends on wind direction. Turbine classes are determined by three parameters – the average wind speed, extreme year gust, and turbulence.
Turbine designers eic typically model turbine vibrations and dynamic forces on critical components by aeroelastic simulation programs such as HAWC2.
You may have heard that IEC defines wind turbine classes with labels like III Bwhere the roman number refers to a reference wind speed and the index letter refers to a turbulence category. IEC started standardizing international certification on the subject inand the first standard appeared in To verify that a wind turbine belongs to a give wind turbine class, it must be proven safe under a set of predefined load cases.
List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
Webarchive template wayback links Articles lacking in-text citations from March All articles lacking in-text citations Use British English Oxford spelling from January To facilitate comparison with the NTM model, the IEC standard suggests the so-called effective turbulence intensity, which is an ideal turbulence independent on wind direction and expected to cause the same fatigue damage as variable turbulence in winds from all directions.
National Renewable Energy Laboratory participates in IEC standards development work,   and tests equipment according to these standards. The siting engineer must verify the safety of the deployed turbines. Basic Aspects” Suzlon Energy.
In principle, the aeroelastic simulation could be repeated with local wind conditions at specific turbine positions.
The IEC turbine safety standard. Variable atmospheric stability, unsteady wind, and directional variation of upwind terrain will introduce variations in observed turbulence intensity. In Canada, the previous national standards were outdated and impeded the wind industry, and they were updated and harmonized with by the Canadian Standards Association with several modifications.
Wind turbine classes” Vestas. Wind turbines are designed for specific conditions. For small wind turbines the global industry has been working towards harmonisation of certification requirements with a “test once, certify 614000-1 objective.
The load type is either an ultimate load, which might instantly damage the turbine, or a fatigue load. The effective turbulence intensity includes added turbulence from wakes of neighbour turbines, and a simple wake turbulence model is provided. Here, the main principle is that local wind conditions must not exceed those of the models used for turbine classification.
Because the fatigue loads of a number of major components in a wind turbine are mainly caused by turbulence, the knowledge of 614001 turbulent a site is of crucial importance.
Effective turbulence intensity will generally decrease with wind speed due to decreasing stability effects and turbine thrust coefficient. The standard concerns most aspects of the turbine life from site conditions before construction, to turbine components being tested,  assembled and operated.
Small wind turbines are defined uec being of up to m 2 swept area and a somewhat simplified IEC standard addresses these. Wind classes determine which turbine is suitable for the normal wind conditions of a particular site. Wind load models are scaled differently for each wind turbine class, thus a class I A turbine is tested for higher extreme wind speed and more severe turbulence than a class II B 61040-1.

This page was last edited on 26 Septemberat Archived from the original on 7 October In complex terrain the wind profile is not a simple uec and additionally a separation of the flow might occur, leading to heavily increased turbulence.
It is, however, simpler to apply the site-assessment rules specified in another chapter of IEC The is a set of design requirements made to ensure that wind turbines are appropriately engineered against damage from hazards within the planned lifetime.
