Conclusions of the verification of procedures and criteria constituting adraft certification system for small wind turbines are presented. The system has been tested on a small wind turbine type (LMW 1500). The assessment consisted of a design assessment and a number of tests. The design assessment has been completed satisfactorily. However, the tests were seriously hampered by a number of unfavourable circumstances, due to low wind conditions during the period in which the wind turbine was available for testing and due to technical problems with the wind turbine. As a consequence, it is not possible to draw definitive conclusions on the applicability and suitability of the proposed testing procedures. More research and development efforts are required to fine-tune the proposed certification system into a marketable product. The two appendices contain the English texts of the ECN memos 'Certification investigation small wind turbine system LMW-1500' and 'System for certification investigation small wind turbines. Summary of test results LMW 1500'. 6 refs.
