IEC WT 01 pdf download – IEC System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Wind Turbines — Rules and procedures
The title of the System is:
IEC System for conformity testing and certification of wind turbines”, hereinafter referred to as“the lEc WT System”.
2 Object
Taking into account the object of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as givenin Article 2 of the Statutes,the particular object of the IEC WT System, operated under theauthority of the lEC in conformity with the Statutes, is to facilitate international trade in windturbine generator systems which comply with one or more of the lEC standards prepared byIEC TC 88. This compliance,should reduce the number of steps necessary to obtaincertification or approval at national level whilst preserving an appropriate level of safety.
3 Governing documents
The documents which state the Rules of the IEc wT System and which govern theorganization of its work are as follows:
– the Statutes of the lEC;
– the Rules of Procedure of the lEC and the lSOIEC Directives, unless otherwise specifiedin the Rules of Procedure of the lEC wT System;
the Rules and Procedures which define the principles of the lEC WT System and whichare approved by the CAB;
4 Organization
The system shall be monitored by an overseeing group,comprising the IEC TC 88 officers.The overseeing group reports annually to the cAB on the use and development of the lECwTGs System.
This publication defines a certification system for wind turbines (IEC wT). It specifies rules forprocedures and management to carry out conformity evaluation of WTs,with respect tospecific standards and other technicalrequirements,relating to safety,reliability,performance, testing and interaction with electrical power networks. it provides:
.definitions of the elements in a wind turbine certification process;
procedures for the conformity evaluation in a wind turbine certification system;procedures for conformity surveillance;
rules for the documentation that is to be supplied by an Applicant for the conformityevaluation; and
.requirements for certification and inspection bodies and testing laboratories.
The standard is not limited to WTs of any particular size or type. It describes proceduresrelating to design,manufacture,erection and installation,operation and maintenance,anddecommissioning. The procedures deal with the assessment of loads and safety,testing.characteristics measurements and surveillance of manufacturing,installation and operation.Some elements of certification are mandatory,whilst provision is specifically made for othersto be optional.The purpose of the standard is to provide a common basis for certification ofwind turbines, including a basis for acceptance of operating bodies and mutual recognition ofcertificates.
The standard shall be used in conjunction with the appropriate lEC/So standards andGuides, see clause 6.
