The WINSENT joint project will lead to the construction of a test site in complex terrain. Partners within the WINSENT project are the WindForS institutes of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, of the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, of TU München, of Hochschule Esslingen University of Applied Sciences and of the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW).
Within the framework of the Baden-Württemberg Sustainability Days the “Studienzentrum für Nachhaltige Entwicklung – Study Centre for Sustainable Development” of Hochschule Esslingen held a symposium on 3 June. The symposium was chaired by Professor Hermann Knaus.
How much noise is produced by Wind Turbines?
Wind turbines emit sound and vibrations. The TremAc joint project investigates how they are related and how they can be better predicted and reduced
Wind energy is to have a major share in the future renewable energy mix. The TremAc project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), will aim to improve planning, development and acceptance of wind turbines and to develop objective criteria for their emissions. To this end, experts will investigate the interaction between acoustic and seismic vibrations of wind turbines and plan to create a calculation model that includes both kinds of emission.
