The activities carried out in 1998 for the development of internationalstandards for wind turbines are discussed. The work was done within the framework of the tasks put forward by the Technical Committee IEC TC88 and the BTTF-83-2. ECN and the Delft University of Technology participated on request of the national standards committee NEC88. With respect to TC88, contributions have been made in the working groups WG5 (Acoustic Noise Measurement Techniques), WG6 (Power Performance Testing), WG7 (Safety of Wind Turbines), WG8 (Testing of rotor blades), WG9 (Certification systems) and WG11 (Mechanical Load Measurements), in the project team PT1 (Lightning Protection) and in the TC88 Committee. The working groups 8, 9 and 11 have delivered a committee draft in 1998. For the development of European Standards, ECN participated in the activities of Cenelec BTTF 83-2 and its working group WG4 (Acoustic noise Measurements). A workshop has been organised on standardisation and certification. An increasing number of parties is interested in the development of new standards and the revision of existing standards. The Dutch contribution to the international committees is substantial. 8 refs.
