The manufacturer must guarantee that the equipment will be operating at minimum 80% capacity after 20 years. The EAA provides additional technical requirements for inverters and batteries.
Certification of Equipment for Generating Wind Energy
EAA specifies that a wind turbine must meet IEC standards including 61400-1, and if it is inverter integrated 61400-2, 61400-11 and UL Std. 1741. Also the manufacturer’s data sheet, as well as a minimum 5-year warranty letter are required. There is a proposed amendment to the certification requirements for generating wind energy.
