AbstractHGC Engineering investigated infrasound at several wind power projects and prepared a summary document for the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) in 2007. HGC Engineering also investigated three additional situations involving the perception of infrasound by individuals. These situations involved the measurement of infrasound sources, using refined measurement methods, determining the physical effects of infrasound at neighboring receptors and the manner in which infrasound was perceived by neighbors. The sources included wind turbines, as large reciprocating engine used for power generation, and an industrial sieve used to shift material. Several sets of measurements were sequentially performed with and without wind turbine generators operating.
