Icing of wind turbines
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This RP provides principles and technical requirements for wind turbines under icing conditions - both onshore and offshore.
The RP covers the following topics:
- external conditions
- design loads
- site assessment to identify risk of ice for a potential site
- ice detection, including de-icing and anti-icing procedures and influence on control and protection system
- design requirements.
General requirements for wind turbine technical applications in low temperature climate (LT) are outside the scope of this RP. They may be found in DNVGL-RP-0363.
