The pre-normative PROTEST project looked at possibilities to improve the current standards by using wind turbine prototype measurements to validate the drive train, pith system and yaw system models. The main conclusions from this project that could be valuable for the standards committees are summarised in this report. These recommendations include new Design Load Cases, measurement procedures for model validation and load measurements at specific interconnection points.
