On Wind Turbine Noise and Air Pressure Pulses
The von Trapp family came to Vermont because it reminded them of Austria, where “the hills are alive with the sounds of music”. Those sounds will soon be replaced by the health-damaging infrasound and low frequency noise from 3 MW wind turbines on 2,000-ft high ridge lines, courtesy of GMP/Gaz-Metro-Canada. GMP’s 21 wind turbines of the Lowell Mountain facility will emit various noises, such as: machinery noise in the nacelle rhythmic/pulsating, trailing-edge noise from the blades (“blade swish”) as they slice . . .

GE Flexefficiency 50 CCGT Facilities and Wind Turbine Facilities
Increased generation of wind energy will present additional challenges to the management of the energy on the New England Electric Grid, NEEG. Because wind energy is variable and intermittent, additional spinning and backup plants, such as a mix of open cycle gas turbines, OCGTs, and combined cycle gas turbines, CCGTs, must be kept in 24/7/365 operation to supply and withdraw energy as required. The plants must respond to changes of: demand of millions of users during a day. supply, such . . . Complete article »
