Underpinning Methodology to Derive Stand-Off Distances from a Wind Farm
At present, the scientific basis for setting the stand-off distance threshold is unclear, resulting in diverse approaches nationally and internationally. Annoyance effects from wind turbine for the non-infrasonic component have been published. Health effects including nausea, dizziness, and headaches have been reported and assumptions for linking those effects to the infrasonic component are being increasingly suggested. The noise spectra generated by a wind farm has two components; an infrasonic component and a non-infrasonic component. For all the components, the sound . . . Complete article »
Shepherd, Daniel; Hanning, Christopher; and Thorne, Bob
Abstract Windfarms consist of clusters of wind turbines, which, when placed in populated areas, are associated with intrusive and unwanted sound. A relatively new noise source, wind turbine noise has characteristics sufficiently different from other, more extensively studied, noise sources to suggest that preexisting noise standards are not appropriate. Though research into the human impacts of wind turbine noise has appeared only in the last decade and in small quantity, the data suggest that, for equivalent exposures, wind turbine noise . . .
