Lightning protection for wind turbines


This International Standard applies to lightning protection of wind turbine generators and wind power systems.
Normative references are made to generic standards for lightning protection, low-voltage systems and high-voltage systems for machinery and installations and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).

This standard defines the lightning environment for wind turbines and application of the environment for risk assessment for the wind turbine. It defines requirements for protection of blades, other structural components and electrical and control systems against both direct and indirect effects of lightning. Test methods to validate compliance are recommended.

Guidance on the use of applicable lightning protection, industrial electrical and EMC standards including earthing is provided.
Guidance regarding personal safety is provided.
Guidelines for damage statistics and reporting are provided.
