Annoyance due to amplitude modulated low-frequency wind farm noise: A laboratory study.

This study tested for differences in perceived annoyance and loudness between road traffic noise (RTN) and wind farm noise (WFN) with amplitude modulation (AM) and tonality. Twenty-two participants,

EEG power spectral responses to wind farm compared with road traffic noise during sleep: A laboratory study

It is found that spectral analyses show subtle effects of noise on sleep and that electroencephalogram changes following wind turbine noise and road traffic noise onset differ depending on sound pressure levels; however, these effects were mostly transient and had little impact on conventionally scored sleep.

Multi-input model uncertainty analysis for long-range wind farm noise predictions

One of the major sources of uncertainty in predictions of wind farm noise (WFN) reflect parametric and model structure uncertainty. The model structure uncertainty is a systematic uncertainty, which

Beyond traditional wind farm noise characterisation using transfer learning.

This study proposes an approach for the characterisation and assessment of wind farm noise (WFN), which is based on extraction of acoustic features between 125 and 7500 Hz from a pretrained deep

Application of wavelet synchrosqueezed transforms to the analysis of infrasound signals generated by wind turbines.

The issues reported in this article concern the development of methods applied for measurement, processing, and analysis of infrasound signals generated in association with the operation of wind

Automated detection and analysis of amplitude modulation at a residence and wind turbine

A small degree of amplitude modulation is a normal feature of wind turbine noise but most assessment guidelines for wind farm noise state that, where excessive amplitude modulation occurs, an

Effect of modulation depth, frequency, and intermittence on wind turbine noise annoyance.

It is suggested that, at a given overall level, the AM depth of NAM periods is the most crucial AM parameter for WTN annoyance.

Short-term annoyance reactions to stationary and time-varying wind turbine and road traffic noise: A laboratory study.

Investigation of short-term noise annoyance reactions to wind turbines and road traffic in controlled laboratory listening tests discloses a direct link of different acoustic characteristics to annoyance, yet the generalizability to long-term exposure in the field still needs to be verified.

Amplitude modulation of sound from wind turbines under various meteorological conditions.

A method for quantifying the degree and strength of amplitude modulation (AM) is introduced here and reveals that AM at the immission points occur under specific meteorological conditions.

The aim of this study was to assess the discrepancies of the results of equivalent sound levels measured locally in relation to changes in acoustic pressure. The article studies both single turbines

Effect of Wind Shear on Amplitude Modulation of Wind Turbine Noise

Wind turbines normally produce a swishing sound due to directivity of broadband trailing edge noise from the blades. The sound level variation of this ‘Normal Amplitude Modulation’ (NAM) is usually

Comparison of the noise levels measured in the vicinity of a wind farm for shutdown and operational conditions

Outdoor and indoor microphone measurements have been taken in the vicinity of the Waterloo wind farm at a number of locations during periods when the nearby wind farm was operational as well as when
