Prediction of Sound Propagation From Power Transmission Plant
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In ABB, Soundplan is the usually used software to predict the industrial noise for power transmission plants. However, the sound sources in Soundplan are modeled as point sources between which there are no sound reflections. For the real situation, the sound sources are very big and can be regarded as noise barriers. So it is important to take the reflections between sound sources into consideration.COMSOL Multiphysics is Finite Element Method (FEM) software which can model acoustic object with sound-reflective boundaries. First, the COMSOL model for single component inside the power transmission plant will be discussed. Then the COMSOL model for the whole plant will be calculated at different frequencies. The total sound pressure level at different receivers will be compared between COMSOL and Soundplan results. COMSOL can be used to predict the sound propagation of the power transmission plant and it can give different results when the outline of the plant is changed.
