Sound measurements

The Stuttgart Wind Energy (SWE) chair at the University of Stuttgart has at its disposal measuring equipment to carry out noise measurements. This includes a suitably equipped noise level meter. In combination with simultaneous wind and power performance measurements on wind turbines, noise measurements can be carried out in accordance with IEC standard 61400-11.

Furthermore, frequency analyses can be used to examine the tonaiity and pulsing in airborne noise and noise transmitted through solids.
