Moller, Pedersen: Low Frequency Noise from Large Wind Turbines

Wind turbines get larger and larger, and worries have emerged that the noise emitted by the turbines would consequently move down in frequency and that the content of low-frequency and infrasonic noise would increase and reach a level, where it may be annoying for the neighbours.

The daily press frequently reports on rumbling and annoying noise from large wind turbines, and it is often claimed that it propagates quite far. However, the scientific literature on infrasonic and low-frequency noise from large wind turbines is more limited.
