Wind farm on or adjoining your property? – A guide to what you need to know

Author:  Browne, Karen; and Hamilton, Carol

The Western Australian Government is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050. In doing so, energy companies are under increasing pressure to reduce emissions and adopt low or no carbon technologies. The South West Interconnected System has recently doubled in size and includes the 51 turbine Yandin Wind Farm opened in May 2021. Currently, there are plans underway for installation of a further 42 turbine wind farm in the Shires of Kojonup and Broomehill-Tambellup. Rural landowners are coming under . . .

Evaluation of wind farm noise amplitude modulation synthesis quality

Author:  Nguyen, Phuc; Hansen, Kristy; Zajamšek, Branko; and Catcheside, Peter

Abstract – Wind farm noise amplitude modulation (WFNAM) is a major contributor to annoyance and could cause sleep disturbance. In laboratory listening experiments assessing its annoyance and sleep disturbance potential, WFNAM stimuli are commonly synthesised and can thus suffer from a lack of ecological validity. Here, five stimuli synthesis methods were compared with measured noise in terms of their perceived similarity. An ABX discrimination listening test and one-third octave band spectra were used for evaluation of the aural and visual similarity, . . .

Prevalence of wind farm amplitude modulation at long-range residential locations

Author:  Hansen, Kristy; Nguyen, Phuc; Zajamšek, Branko; Catcheside, Peter; and Hansen, Colin

ABSTRACT – The presence of amplitude modulation (AM) in wind farm noise has been shown to result in increased annoyance. Therefore, it is important to determine how often this characteristic is present at residential locations near a wind farm. This study investigates the prevalence and characteristics of wind farm AM at 9 different residences located near a South Australian wind farm that has been the subject of complaints from local residents. It is shown that an audible indoor low-frequency tone was . . .
