Aeroacoustic Noise Measurements of a Wind Turbine with BSDS Blades using an Acoustic Array

Environmental noise restrictions play a role in the performance of wind turbines and the dominant source of noise on modern turbines is aeroacoustic noise produced by the blades. A 32 sensor acoustic array has been developed in cooperation between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Colorado to conduct measurements of… (More)
