Derivation and application of a composite annoyance reaction construct based on multiple wind turbine features

Author:  Michaud, David; et al. | Health, Noise, Ontario, Prince Edward Island

Abstract – Objectives: Noise emissions from wind turbines are one of multiple wind turbine features capable of generating annoyance that ranges in magnitude from not at all annoyed to extremely annoyed. No analysis to date can simultaneously reflect the change in all magnitudes of annoyance toward multiple wind turbine features. The primary objective in this study was to use principal component analysis (PCA) to provide a single construct for overall annoyance to wind turbines based on reactions to noise, blinking . . .

Association between self-reported and objective measures of health and aggregate annoyance scores toward wind turbine installations

Author:  Michaud, David; et al. | Health, Noise, Ontario, Prince Edward Island

Abstract – Objective: An aggregate annoyance construct has been developed to account for annoyance that ranges from not at all annoyed to extremely annoyed, toward multiple wind turbine features. The practical value associated with aggregate annoyance would be strengthened if it was related to health. The objective of the current paper was to assess the association between aggregate annoyance and multiple measures of health. Methods: The analysis was based on data originally collected as part of Health Canada’s Community Noise . . .

Response to Noise Emitted by Wind Farms in People Living in Nearby Areas

Author:  Pawlaczyk-Łuszczyńska, Małgorzata; et al. | Health, Noise

Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the perception and annoyance of noise from wind turbines in populated areas of Poland. A questionnaire inquiry was carried out among 517 subjects, aged 18–88, living within 204–1726 m from the nearest wind turbine. For areas where respondents lived, A-weighted sound pressure levels (SPLs) were calculated as the sum of the contributions from the wind power plants in the specific area. It has been shown that the wind turbine noise at . . .

A Review of the Possible Perceptual and Physiological Effects of Wind Turbine Noise

Author:  Carlile, Simon; Davy, John; Hillman, David; and Burgemeister, Kym | Health, Noise

Abstract: This review considers the nature of the sound generated by wind turbines focusing on the low-frequency sound (LF) and infrasound (IS) to understand the usefulness of the sound measures where people work and sleep. A second focus concerns the evidence for mechanisms of physiological transduction of LF/IS or the evidence for somatic effects of LF/IS. While the current evidence does not conclusively demonstrate transduction, it does present a strong prima facia case. There are substantial outstanding questions relating to . . .
