Wind Turbine Noise 2019
The theme of this conference is “Consolidating our knowledge on Wind Turbine Noise”. One of the ways we plan to do that is with a series of workshops on key subjects. We can’t say, until the papers themselves come in, what subjects the workshops will covered but the general themes predominating at the conference are set out in the summary of abstracts below.
Source Noise Prediction and Validation
As with the last two conferences we have an varied selection of papers on trailing edge noise and a few more this year on leading edge noise. Serrations are still the predominant noise mitigation but have become more sophisticated.
An interesting collection of abstracts on propagation from as far afield as Uraguay, Canada, Sweden and Australia. Particular emphasis on the impact of meteorological conditions on propagation
Health Effects and Perception
We have a good selection of papers this conference on the subject; dealing with field studies and laboratory studies. In addition we have papers on how public and private perception influences reaction to turbines. We hope to pull some of the strands together with contributions from authors and others.
There has been a lot of work done on background noise in the last two years; particularly how it varies with the seasons and whether it can be modelled. Another possible subject for discussion bringing in non-authors as well as authors.
WHO Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region
Although there is only one abstract dealing with the wind turbine noise guidelines produced in 2018, there are plenty of issues raised generally and we hope to have time for discussion of the topic.
Last but not least is the largest group of papers dealing generally with noise at the receiver. This covers instrumentation: character of the noise, that is amplitude modulation and tones: noise and character standards and guidelines: problems with assessment and compliance testing.
As in previous years about two-thirds of the abstracts have come from Europe with most of the rest from Australia, Canada and USA but this year, perhaps not surprisingly given the venue, a small but welcome group from Brasil.
