Visitors to the Institute of Acoustics’ (IOA) Wind Energy meeting will have a chance to see noise specialist, Brüel & Kjær’s latest environmental tools.
During the meeting – held on Thursday 26 January at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff – Bruel & Kjaer UK’s environmental specialists will be demonstrating the company’s kit for testing wind turbines, including its 2250 and 2270 sound level meters. These portable meters provide a complete toolbox for field testing, which allow users to measure, record and analyse results.
As noise plays an increasingly important role in wind energy, understanding noise reduction is a critical factor during the research, development and operation stages. Accurate tools are necessary to locate and evaluate the noise from every aspect of turbine design – from blades to nacelle insulation.
Organised by the IOA’s Welsh branch, the meeting will be a series of presentations and discussions centred on renewable energy.
