In the framework of a shared sponsorship with a large German wind turbine manufacturer, research is planned on the efficient 3D numerical prediction of aerodynamic wind turbine noise. The use of wind turbines represents a significant part of the conversion to renewable energy. However, wind turbines produce aerodynamic noise, which in view of residents is to be kept as low as possible. By use of local 3D modifications at wind turbine blades (e.g. serrations at the trailing edge) appreciable reduction of the radiated noise may be achieved. A targeted approach for the development of such measures could be significantly supported by aeroacoustic simulations. The position aims at developing a non-empiric 3D aeroacoustic CAA(=ComputationalAeroAcoustics) method for the simulation of sound of wind turbines.
