CENELEC - EN IEC 61400-6

Wind energy generation systems - Part 6: Tower and foundation design requirements

active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 June 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 128
ICS Code (Wind turbine energy systems): 27.180
scope:

This part of IEC 61400 specifies requirements and general principles to be used in assessing the structural integrity of onshore wind turbine support structures (including foundations). The scope includes the geotechnical assessment of the soil for generic or site specific purposes. The strength of any flange and connection system connected to the rotor nacelle assembly (including connection to the yaw bearing) are designed and documented according to this document or according to IEC 61400-1. The scope includes all life cycle issues that may affect the structural integrity such as assembly and maintenance.

The assessment assumes that load data has been derived as defined in IEC 61400-1 or IEC 61400-2 and using the implicit reliability level and partial safety factors for loads.
