Part of the requirements for carrying the FGW conformity seal is the participation in all future FGW robin tests. These tests are used to ensure quality assurance for the application of FGW guidelines and to determine ambiguities and uncertainties. For this purpose, the participating institutes apply the entire or parts of the testing method on identical sample data sets, simulation models or devices. The submitted results are compared with each other and examined against pre-defined success criteria. If the success criteria are adhered to, the participation in the round robin test is considered as passed.
Current Round Robin Tests:
TC Noise - Topic: IEC 61400-11 ed.3
Description: The round robin test aims to check the reproducibility of data analysis of sound emission measurements according to IEC 61400-11 ed. 3. Raw measurement data provided by the participants is used as a basis. The following points are tested:
Data reduction and classification
Determination and processing of acoustic measurands
Determination of correction values
Determination of tonality
Determination of measurement uncertainties
Based on the evaluation and discussion of the results, the quality of the standard shall be checked. Furthermore, the results can serve as a proof for the qualification of the participating test laboratories.
Description: The round robin test aims to check the reproducibility of measurements and data analysis of electrical measurements on a PGU according to FGW TG 3 Revision 24. Time synchronous measurement data covering the whole power range of the PGU and recorded by all participants at a mutual test bench test on 16th to 17th of May 2018 is used as a basis. The following points are tested:
Based on the evaluation and discussion of the results, the quality of the guideline shall be checked. Furthermore, the results can serve as a proof for the qualification of the participating test laboratories.
TC Operating Data & Site Yield - Topic: TG 10
TG10 round robin test acc. to Rev. 2 in 2022
Preparations for Part II are underway. The first processing period (Round 1) is expected to start in October. The second round is planned for November.
Part I for the TG 10 Rev. 2 round robin test in 2022 has been completed.
