Wind energy generation systems - Part 8: Design of wind turbine structural components


The aim is to develop a standard for the design of wind turbine structural components. It will build on and complement IEC 61400-1 to be used with and consistent with other component standards in the 61400 series such as IEC 61400-4 and IEC 61400-6, as well as other applicable IEC and ISO standards.

Focus shall be on Ferrous metal structural components in the rotor-nacelle assembly (RNA), which are typically cast, forged, bolted or welded together. Such components are typically subjected to dynamic loading and fatigue and manufactured in series.

The standard is intended to provide a complete set of technical design requirements to ensure the structural integrity. The standard will be developed as a component standard according to the principles and structure proposed in the upcoming IEC 61400-101 standard.
