1 Advanced outdoor wind testing in the U.S. UL and West Texas A&M University collaborate on large-scale wind turbine test facility

2 Consolidated expertise brings new wind to global trade UL, together with the DEWI Group, has collaborated with West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) to establish a large-scale outdoor wind turbine test facility. The facility one of the largest in the world is located near Amarillo, Texas, the main transportation hub of the Texas Panhandle. It is also directly in the middle of the Great Plains Wind Corridor, with favorable wind conditions year round. Based on these wind resources, WTAMU has been a wind-energy research pioneer since the 197s. Today, WTAMU is recognized both nationally and internationally for groundbreaking wind research and technology development. At the new testing facility, wind turbine manufacturers can now profit from this unique partnership, as well as very favorable wind resources and the ability to erect turbines for extended periods of time. The facility opens new testing capacity for turbine manufacturers seeking certification to international standards, helping to reduce time-to-market and lower costs, as downtime can essentially be eliminated.

3 Services for large wind The new facility provides large wind manufacturers with an optimal location to test, measure and certify their turbines or prototypes. The service portfolio includes different measurements (power curve, mechanical loads, acoustic noise/vibration, and electrical characteristics for grid connection), certification of wind turbines/components, as well as customized test programs, data collection and testing consultation. The measurements offered are also available as stand-alone, outside of a certification process. All services are performed by UL, DEWI, DEWI-OCC and WTAMU, according to the following guidelines and depending on the customer requirements: Wind turbine and component testing according to IEC 614 Certification and type approval of onshore and offshore wind turbines according to all other international guidelines Conformity testing and certification to IEC (1., May 21) Single, integrated service delivery for wind turbine certification to U.S. and all internationally accepted guidelines Services for small and micro wind AWEA 9.1 defines turbines with a rotor-swept area of 2m 2 or less (rotor diameter of about 16m or less) as small wind. For small wind, UL provides testing and certification to: Classification to UL 6142 Turbine component certification AWEA 9.1 (SWCC*) MCS 6 (Issue 1.5, Oct. 29 UK Micro-generation Certification Scheme) British Wind Energy Association Small Wind Turbine Performance and Safety Standard, Feb. 28 Japanese standards TAPS-2 (India) Annual Wind Resource UL Other U.S. Laboratory Annual hours available Wind Speed (m/s) Site Wind Speed (1m) Site Wind Speed 1 m Month 211 Wind Rose 1 m > 15 m/s > 9.5 m/s Wind Bins (m/s) Hourly Observations Monthly Observations Long-term research and design testing For both large and small wind turbines, the new UL test facility provides one of the only opportunities in the world to install one or more turbines (i.e., with new design concepts) indefinitely. This enables manufacturers to gather comprehensive, long-term field data on the following: Low- and Zero-Voltage Ridethrough Testing New blade designs and other modified components Alternate generator constructions and drive train concepts Updated software packages and condition monitoring systems Alternate or updated electrical concepts Noise reduction measures, power performance, as well as long term energy production and component lifetime testing *UL works in conjunction with SWCC to issue this certification
