Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) The noise caused by wind turbines is a common argument to limit or to stop construction of new wind farms. Especially, the words “low frequencies” or “infrasounds” are often used by people to describe the wind turbine noise in the popular literature. What are the relevant elements? The presentation will be interested in the wind turbine noise emission before highlighting good practice to carry out relevant immission measurements. Then sound indicators and their weightings will be approached. A specific part of the presentation will be dedicated to infrasounds and their problems: opposite opinions in the scientific community and measurement difficulties. Finally, we will try to conclude about wind turbines and their low-frequency noise and other different ways will be considered to understand the annoyance that people can feel around a wind farm.
