Summary : The UK has committed to sourcing 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and wind turbines have the potential to contribute towards this target. Due to the Feed-In-Tariffs introduced by the UK Government in 2010, the potential uptake of micro-generation methods such as small wind is likely to increase. However, many barriers exist which prevent widespread implementation, such as noise concerns. There is little work available in the open literature quantifying the problem because much of the existing research focuses on large scale turbines. The need for an increase in interdisciplinary research in this area has also been called for. This research fills the gap in the literature by seeking to better understand the noise levels generated by small wind systems, the characteristics of the noise and people's reactions to this noise. The research is interdisciplinary, incorporating engineering, to measure, characterise and model the noise from small wind systems and psychology, to identify the type of people who are most likely to perceive the noise. Environmental noise measurements have been taken at small wind system installations to quantify and characterise the noise levels. This work included an assessment of the attenuation of the noise. Studies have been carried out on individuals living close to small wind system installations, as well as individuals being played recordings of wind turbine noise to investigate the level and type of noise they perceive and to link this to an individual's attitude towards wind turbines, personality traits and symptom reporting. CFD has been used to model the flow fields around 2D blade sections to identify the likely noise mechanisms associated with small wind systems by observing the turbulent regions near the aerofoil wall. Finally, a comparison of the three methods has been carried out to identify that the overall level of small wind system noise is low but it is the nature of the sounds that increase the likely perception of the noise.

Summary : Scientific Study from the year 2019 in the subject Engineering - Power Engineering, grade: 2.0, Technical University of Berlin, course: Wind Turbine Measurement Techniques, language: English, abstract: In this paper, the differences between a performance analysis of a wind turbine by computational simulations and by experimental methods such as tests in the wind tunnel ”GroWiKa” belonging to the TU Berlin are analysed. The qualitative and quantitative aspects of both the rotor of the turbine and its electric generator are analyzed under specific experimental methods whose resulting graphs are compared with simulation software such as Qblade for rotor performance and Open AFPM for electric generator performance. Finally, from this comparison, an analysis is derived by which the accuracy of the information obtained by the used software is validated. Due to the recent climate crisis and new trends regarding the development of energy production, wind energy has become one of the most used solutions in the field of renewable energies. This technology offers efficiencies and performance even beyond energy production systems such as solar energy and even internal combustion engines based on biodiesel. Another convenience of wind energy is the fact that it has a wide potential for places even hard to reach by other technologies. But, just as it has a great number of advantages, it also has disadvantages because it is a technology that is still under development and its mode of implementation depends on a great number of variables such as mechanical, electrical and climate factors that must be taken into account when developing the different types of projects.

Summary : In this study the emphasis is placed on renewable energy sources with reference to the energy derived from the wind. The advantages and disadvantages of wind energy exploitation are presented here. In order to exploit the energy from the wind, wind power plants are required which consist of one or more wind turbines to produce energy. The district of Bjelovar-Bilogora Country was explored for the purposes of selecting the best location for a small wind power plant project. The AHP - Analytic Hierarchy Process - method was used to select the best location for the installation of the small wind power plant. It is based on a mathematical model and is used in choosing among multiple alternatives and delivers flexibility in decision making. The risks that may occur during the construction of the small wind power plant are also presented. There are many of them, as in every project, but they must be taken very seriously in order to complete the project successfully.
