Wind Turbine Evaluation

Over the last few decades the world is focusing on using renewable energy as a mix of power to minimize the cause of carbon emission to the atmosphere. The Kyoto protocol, which entered into force on February 2005, places a heavier burden on developing nations to minimize the level of GHG (Green House Gas) to an acceptable level in the years to come. As a result, rapid growth in the solar and wind turbine market has been accelerating at pace not seen before the decade. We provide the broadest range of services in support of these programs as well as ASC’s own Wind Turbine Program.


ASC with its partner offer a complete range of testing and certification services, including:


  • Initial Product Design Review
  • Consultation on Certification Practices
  • AWEA 9.1 Testing for Duration, Acoustic and Power Performance to the IEC 61400-2, IEC 61400-11 and IEC 61400-12-1 Standards, with AWEA Standard Deviations
  • AWEA 9.1 Certification
  • Testing and Certification to the Canadian Variations of the IEC Wind Turbine Standards – CAN/CSA C61400-2, CAN/CSA C61400-11, CAN/CSA C61400-12-1
  • MCS/BWEA Testing and Certification
  • IEC Type Certification
  • ASC evaluation of Electrical Component and Subassemblies including Generators, Inverters, Controllers and all Other Minor Components

AWEA Small Wind Turbine Performance and Safety Standard


Certification to this standard shall be done by an independent certifying agency beside the manufacturer that addresses the safety concerns in IEC 61400-12-1, ed.1 (Performance); IEC 61400-11, ed.2 (Acoustic Noise); and IEC 61400-2, ed.2 (Design Requirements). This standard applies to small wind turbines for both on-grid and off-grid applications that includes:


  1. General Information
  2. Performance Testing
  3. Acoustic Sound Testing
  4. Strength and Safety 
  5. Duration Test
  6. Report
  7. Labeling
