Abstract

This paper presents a general overview of wind turbine noise including sources, measurements standards, psychoacoustics, infrasound, propagation and regulatory perspectives. The authors presented similar material at the National Wind Coordinating Committee's special meeting on "Technical Considerations in Siting Wind Developments" [1] held in Washington D.C. In addition, many relevant papers can be found in the proceedings of the First International Conference on Wind Turbine Noise 2005 [2], some of which are summarized here.
