Abstract

CAA Acoustics Week in Canada, 2023, introduced a criterion based on an acoustic measure to objectively predict annoyance from wind turbines.[1] That criterion predicted annoyance if (LA10-LA90) was ≤ 3 dBA, while (LZ10-LZ90) was ≥ 6dBZ. This correlated closely with subjective identification of annoyance from residents living in the wind turbine environment. That evidence was gathered primarily at a site near constant speed, stall regulated wind turbines. This paper gives subsequent investigations of annoyance at a site with variable speed pitch regulated turbines.
