1 Scope
This Standard specifies requirements for pre-operational proof and leakage rate testing of concrete
containment structures of a containment system that are designated as class containment components.
Note: Other components and appurtenances of the containment system may be tested coincident with the tests specified in
this Standard provided that the intent of this Standard is observed and the requirements of CSA N285.0 are considered.

1 Scope 
This part of IEC 61400 deals with safety philosophy, quality assurance, and engineering  integrity and specifies requirements for the safety of small wind turbines (SWTs) including design, installation, maintenance and operation under specified external conditions. Its purpose is to provide the appropriate level of protection against damage from hazards from these systems during their planned lifetime. 

This standard is concerned with all subsystems of SWTs such as protection mechanisms, internal electrical systems, mechanical systems, support structures, foundations and the electrical interconnection with the load. A small wind turbine system includes the wind turbine itself including support structures, the turbine controller, the charge controller / inverter (if required), wiring and disconnects, the installation and operation manual(s) and other documentation. 

While this standard is similar to IEC 61400-1, it does simplify and make significant changes in order to be applicable to small wind turbines. Any of the requirements of this standard may be altered if it can be suitably demonstrated that the safety of the turbine system is not compromised. This provision, however, does not apply to the classification and the associated definitions of external conditions in Clause 6. Compliance with this standard does not relieve any person, organisation, or corporation from the responsibility of observing other applicable regulations. 

This standard applies to wind turbines with a rotor swept area smaller than or equal to 200 m2, generating electricity at a voltage below 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c. for both on-grid and off-grid applications. This standard should be used together with the appropriate IEC and ISO standards (see Clause 2).

This Code applies to

a) the storage, handling, and transfer of propane;

b) propane used as an engine fuel in other than motor vehicles; and

c) the installation, operation, and maintenance of and to be used for propane at customer locations, in distribution locations and 


This Code does not apply to

(a) transportation of propane;

(b) manufacture, selection, and use of standardized means of containment under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations;

(d) marine or pipeline terminals;

(e) gas where used as a feedstock in petroleum refineries or chemical plants;

(f) utility pipeline distribution and transmission pipelines;

(g) refrigerated storage or underground formations for propane;

(h) propane used on boats;

(i) propane used as a propellant in aerosol ;

(j) butane fuel of 6.2 oz (175 g) capacity or less;

(k) any equipment extending downstream from the inlet to any container pressure regulator (commonly referred to as first-stage regulator); propane fuel system components and tanks on vehicles covered by CSA B149.5; and

(m) propane used as refrigerant. 


Where the term “propane” is used, the requirements of this Code include, and apply equally to, any material that is composed predominantly of any of the following hydrocarbons or mixtures of them: propane, propylene, butanes (normal butane or isobutane), and butylenes.


The values given in yard/pound units are the standard, unless noted otherwise. This Code contains SI (metric) equivalents to yard/pound units so that the Code can be used in SI (metric) units. SI (metric) equivalents may be approximate unless they are the standard. 


In this Code, unless approved otherwise by the authority having jurisdiction, “shall” indicates a mandatory requirement; “should” indicates a recommendation or that which is advised but not mandatory; and “may” indicates an advisory or optional statement. Notes to the text do not include mandatory or alternative requirements. The purpose of a note is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material that is not properly a part of this Code. Notes to figures and tables, however, are considered part of the figure or table and may be written as mandatory requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application. 


This Code and any standards referenced in it do not make or imply any assurance or guarantee with respect to the life expectancy, durability, or operating performance of equipment and materials referenced in the Code.
