This part of IEC 61400 specifies essential design requirements to ensure the structural integrity of wind turbines. Its purpose is to provide an appropriate level of protection against damage from all hazards during the planned lifetime. This document is concerned with all subsystems of wind turbines such as control and protection functions, internal electrical systems, mechanical systems and support structures. This document applies to wind turbines of all sizes.

For small wind turbines, IEC 61400-2 can be applied. IEC 61400-3-1 provides additional requirements to offshore wind turbine installations.

This document is intended to be used together with the appropriate IEC and ISO standards mentioned in Clause 2.

The testing evaluation applies to dispensers designed to fill vehicle storage systems following the prescribed protocols defined in SAE J2601 that target rapid fills, while respecting temperature, pressure, and fuel density safety limits. Note: This Standard is a minimum requirement. Manufacturers may take additional safety precautions.

1.2 This Standard was developed for and is intended to be used with the specific version of SAE J2601 and SAE J2799 documents as referenced in Clause 2.

1.3 For fueling dispensers with the capability for communications with the vehicle, these test methods include the approach to confirm the requirements specified in SAE J2799 and SAE J2601.

1.4 It is recommended that newly manufactured hydrogen fueling dispensers be tested according to this Standard prior to initial operation of the dispenser for fueling vehicles. This Standard is also intended to provide test methods for validation of existing hydrogen fueling dispensers.

1.5 Unless otherwise specified, the requirements in this Standard apply to the verification of SAE J2601 compliant hydrogen fueling stations (HFS).

1.6 In the case of conflict between this Standard and federal, provincial, state, or local requirements, the governmental requirements take precedence.
