Title & Task

WG 15

Assessment of wind resource, energy yield and site suitability input conditions for wind power plants


Develops IEC 61400-15 intending to define a framework for assessment and reporting of the wind resource, energy yield and site suitability input conditions for both onshore and offshore wind power plants. This includes:

1. Definition, measurement, and prediction of the long-term meteorological and wind flow characteristics at the site
2. Integration of the long-term meteorological and wind flow characteristics with wind turbine and balance of plant characteristics to predict net energy yield
3. Characterizing environmental extremes and other relevant plant design drivers
4. Assessing the uncertainty associated with each of these steps
5. Addressing documentation and reporting requirements to help ensure the traceability of the assessment processes

This standard is framed to complement and support the scope of related IEC 61400 series standards by defining environmental input conditions. It is not intended to supersede the design and suitability requirements presented in those standards. Specific analytical and modelling procedures as described in IEC 61400-1, 61400-2, and 61400-3 are excluded from this scope.
