Vertical axis wind turbine noise

Charlie Pearson (Energy)


Vertical Axis turbines are ideally suited for deployment in urban environments. If they are to be usable in such close proximity to homes and offices it is essential that the noise is well understood and well controlled. A basic computational acoustic model is being developed which, in combination with wind tunnel experiments, hopes to provide a better insight into the noise generation mechanisms in VAWTs.
