  1. 1. Environmental Impact from Wave Energy Converters : Underwater Noise

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper, Uppsala universitet

    Author : Kalle Haikonen; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Wave energy conversion is a potentially clean and sustainable form ofenergy conversion with no emissions of gases or liquids during operation.There are other environmental issues that need to be taken in consideration.The deployment of a wave power farm will contribute with new surface formarine organisms to colonize.

  2. 2. Human response to wind turbine noise perception, annoyance and moderating factors

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Institute of Medicine, The Sahlgrenska Academy, Göteborg University

    Author : Eja Pedersen; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Noise; Environmental exposure; Wind; Audio-visual interaction; Low-level noise exposure; wind turbines; noise annoyance; sound perception; audio-visual interaction; low-level noise exposure;

    Abstract : Aims: The aims of this thesis were to describe and gain an understanding of how people who live in the vicinity of wind turbines are affected by wind turbine noise, and how individual, situational and visual factors, as well as sound properties, moderate the response.Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out in a flat, mainly rural area in Sweden, with the objective to estimate the prevalence of noise annoyance and to examine the dose-response relationship between A-weighted sound pressure levels (SPLs) and perception of and annoyance with wind turbine noise.

  3. 3. Underwater radiated noise from Point Absorbing Wave Energy Converters Noise Characteristics and Possible Environmental Effects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kalle Haikonen; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave energy conversion; renewable energy; environmental impact; marine ecology; underwater noise;

    Abstract : The conversion of wave energy into electrical energy has the potential to become a clean and sustainable form of renewable energy conversion. However, like all forms of energy conversion it will inevitably have an impact on the marine environment, although not in the form of emissions of hazardous substances (gases, oils or chemicals associated with anticorrosion).

  4. 4. Noise from wind turbines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för byggnader och installationer

    Author : Olivier Fégeant; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; masking; vibration transmission; diffraction; ambient noise; pseudo-noise; cylindrical shell. Perturbation methods; structural mobility; axoustic outdoor measurement; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : A rapid growth of installed wind power capacity is expectedin the next few years. However, the siting of wind turbines ona large scale raises concerns about their environmental impact,notably with respect to noise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Frequency Noise in Coherent Optical Systems: Impact and Mitigation Methods

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Aditya Kakkar; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Equalization enhanced phase noise; frequency noise; coherent optical communications; carrier phase recovery; carrier phase estimation; circular quadrature amplitude modulation; EEPN; CmQAM; blind phase search; phase noise;

    Abstract : The increase in capacity demand along with the advancement in digital signal processing (DSP) have recently revived the interest in coherent optical communications and led to its commercialization. However, design and development of robust DSP algorithms for example for carrier phase recovery (CPR) becomes complex as we opt for high order modulation formats such as 16QAM and beyond. READ MORE
