MEASNET approved measurement procedures are based on the many years of experience of the member institutes gained in their daily work. The developed and harmonised measurement procedures are public and can be downloaded from the homepage of MEASNET ( For clients it is important to know that MEASNET recognised measurements can be performed only by members. The public access to the procedures allows everybody to see which international and national standards and recommendations are applied. At present, four measurements can be performed under the MEASNET quality criteria.

These are:

  1. power performance
  2. acoustic noise
  3. power quality

The growing importance of the world-wide wind market shows the need of additional harmonisations in measurement and energy prediction procedures. MEASNET therefore started the harmonisation processes for mechanical load measurements of wind turbines and site assessments. Two areas of high importance for the further development of wind energy and its sustainable application.

All agreed measurement procedures take into account the final and draft documents of international organi¬sations, e.g. IEC, IEA and in addition results of related research projects and other measurement experiences.
