Wind Turbine Part 13: Measurement of Mechanical loads

The ACP Wind Technical Standards Committee is proposing to reaffirm at its 5-year review date ANSI/AWEA 61400-13: (2017), an identical national adoption of IE 61400-13:2015 as the IEC has not started a revision process, so the standard remains current. This part of IEC 61400 deals with mechanical load measurements on wind turbines. It mainly focuses on large electricity generating horizontal axis wind turbines. However, the methods described might be applicable to other wind turbines as well (for example, mechanical water pumpers, vertical axis turbines). The object of this specification is to describe the methodology and corresponding techniques for the experimental determination of the mechanical loading on wind turbines. This technical specification is intended to act as a guide for carrying out measurements used for verification of codes and/or for direct determination of the structural loading. This specification is not only intended as one coherent measurement specification but can also be used for more limited measurement campaigns.
