ANSI/AWEA 61400-11 Acoustic Noise Measurement Techniques

Format: PDF
Number of pages: 61

AWEA Standard 61400-11 AWEA 61400-11 Acoustic Noise Measurement Techniques is an identical adoption of IEC 61400-11. This standard presents measurement procedures that enable noise emissions of a wind turbine to be characterized. This involves using measurement methods appropriate to noise emission assessment at locations close to the machine, in order to avoid errors due to sound propagation, but far enough away to allow for the finite source size. The procedures described are different in some respects from those that would be adopted for noise assessment in community noise studies. They are intended to facilitate characterization of wind turbine noise with respect to a range of wind speeds and directions. Standardization of measurement procedures will also facilitate comparisons between different wind turbines.

ANSI/AWEA 61400 Part 27-1 Electrical Simulation Models - Wind Turbines

Format: PDF
Number of pages: 100

List Price: $375.00
Member Price: $249.00 (ANSI price $300.00)

This American National Standard (ANS) ANSI/AWEA Standard 61400-27-1 is an identical adoption of IEC 61400-27-1 Electrical Simulation Models - Wind Turbines.  This standard defines standard electrical simulation models for wind turbines and wind power plants. The specified models are time domain positive sequence simulation models, intended to be used in power system and grid stability analyses. The models are applicable for dynamic simulations of short term stability in power systems. IEC 61400-27 includes procedures for validation of the specified electrical simulation models. The validation procedure for IEC 61400-27 is based on tests specified in IEC 61400-21.

ANSI/AWEA 61400-23 Full Scale Structural Testing of Rotor Blades

Format: PDF
Number of pages: 48

AWEA Standard 61400-23 Full Scale Structural Testing of Rotor Blades is an identical adoption of IEC 61400-23:2014. This standard defines the requirements for full-scale structural testing of wind turbine blades and for the interpretation and evaluation of achieved test results. The standard focuses on aspects of testing related to an evaluation of the integrity of the blade, for use by manufacturers and third party investigators. The following tests are considered in this standard: static load tests, fatigue tests, static load tests after fatigue tests, and tests determining other blade properties. The purpose of the tests is to confirm to an acceptable level of probability that the whole population of a blade type fulfils the design assumptions.

ANSI/AWEA 61400-13 Measurement of Mechanical Loads

Format: PDF
Number of pages: 109

AWEA Standard 61400-13 Measurement of Mechanical Loads is an identical adoption of IEC 61400. This standard deals with mechanical load measurements on wind turbines and mainly focuses on large (>40 m2) 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.
