Compliance of Indoor Noise Levels with Approval Conditions

Wind Farm Monitoring

 

Conformance with wind farm noise emission conditions in the internal environment of dwellings can be conducted using the following instrumentation supplied by SAVTEK:

Internal noise and vibration Monitoring

SINUS SoundBook data acquisition, or equivalent Apollo data acquisition system plus laptop

Microphones – Class 1 installed concurrently in one or more rooms of the dwelling

Infrasound microphones – Class 1 installed concurrently in one or more rooms of the dwelling

Tri-axial Velocity seismometers or accelerometers may be simultaneously monitored with the microphones inside a dwelling.

Auxiliary equipment

Weather station linked in to SINUS monitoring station, or

Weather station feed from the wind farm operations (weather station on wind turbine at tower top)

GPS

Monitoring is expected to be installed for a medium to longer term period to capture the noise emissions under a range of wind speeds and wind directions. The number of dwellings to be monitored simultaneously is only limited by the costs of assembling the required instrumentation and the duration of the monitoring period.

The optimal monitoring system for any given site may vary depending upon the availability of the 3G network and the access available to each room of the dwelling.
