  • Acoustic measurements for two configurations of acoustic casings with applications on ambient noise pollution

    Little research was carried out in the field of acoustic casings for HVAC equipment. In this study, we experimentally analyzed the influence of the casing geometry with regard to the acoustic environment. Two casings (cuboid shape and semi-cylindrical shape) were compared according to their experimentally assessed sound power level. The parameters calculated were the sound pressure and power levels. The experimental study proves that the shape of the casing can indeed have an influence on the sound energy radiated outside. Generally, we obtained that for low frequencies (16Hz-250Hz) the semi-cylindrical casing has a better acoustic behavior, for median frequencies (500Hz-1000Hz) the cuboid casing has better acoustic performance and for high frequencies (2000Hz-16000Hz) both casings have similar performance. Further, in-depth research regarding the influence of the mass, joinery and other specifications upon the acoustic indoor or outdoor environment is needed in order to understand the “optimal” shape for equipment casing.

    This paper applies a pattern recognition method for localisation of the PD site in the oil-filled transformer by acoustic measurements. By dividing the transformer into N numbers of 20/spl times/20/spl times/20 mm/sup 3/ sub- modules, the PD site is localised by comparing the spatial distances of each sub-module to the acoustic sensors. The numerical cases indicate that the proposed method is general and practical while avoiding some drawbacks in current algorithms. Moreover, the method improves the accuracy of localisation substantially when compared with the conventional localization method.

  • 3H-2 Elastic Wave Propagation in Anisotropic Microstructures for the Interpretation of Laser Acoustic Measurements

    The wave propagation in anisotropic 3D structures with arbitrary geometries is numerically calculated in order to interpret laser acoustic measurements in microstructures. The laser acoustic Pump-Probe technique generates bulk waves in structures in a thermo elastic way. Here, the wave propagation for various geometries and materials is investigated. In the first part, the wave propagation in isotropic, axisymmetric structures is simulated with a 2D finite difference formulation. The numerical results are verified with measurements of macroscopic specimens. In a second step, the simulations are extended to 3D structures with anisotropic material properties. The implemented code allows the calculation of the wave propagation for different orientations of the material axes (orientation of the orthotropic axes relative to the geometry of the structure). Limits of the presented algorithms are discussed and future directions of the on-going research project are presented

  • Calculated particle trajectories in GIS of different designs and the verification by optical and acoustic measurements

    In this paper single- and three-phase SF/sub 6/ gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) are compared with respect to the effects and the criticality of moving particles. To summarize the sensitivity of different GIS designs to moving particles, an evaluation of many calculated trajectories is presented. Some of the calculated results are verified by optically recorded trajectories of a particle moving in the laboratory GIS setup. As an evident result, which is also supported by acoustic measurements, the particle movement is minor in three-phase enclosures. Characteristic flight patterns demonstrate if the particle, depending on its size, contacts the high-voltage electrode or not. In the first case, a breakdown of the isolating distance gets predictable. The experimental setup, the test-vessel, and the modular components are described. The comparison is limited to rated voltages up to U=170 kV (AC, 50 Hz).

  • Comparison of acoustic measurements of zooplankton populations using an Acoustic Water Column Profiler and an ADCP

    Self-contained, moored echo sounders are a means of monitoring the behavior of populations of zooplankton and small fish over extended periods of time. Such instruments, either moored at or near the seafloor looking upward, or mounted on a surface buoy looking downward, record profiles of acoustic backscatter as a time series, and thus can provide insights into the long-term behavior and distribution of these populations. Single-frequency instruments are not capable of identifying the source of acoustic backscatter as species, but nevertheless can provide valuable information with low-cost, easily-deployed instrumentation over extended periods of time. This type of data can be collected either with an echo sounder designed for the task, or as an auxiliary output of an ADCP, using the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) output. In each case, without precise instrument calibration, an estimation of volume backscatter strength can be made from the data recorded by the two types of instrument. In this paper, we will compare the capabilities of an example of each type of instrument in terms of their spatial and temporal resolution and deployment endurance for extended monitoring. Calibration issues will also be discussed. In June 2004, a 200 kHz Acoustic Water Column Profiler (Version 4) and a 300 kHz RDI ADCP were co- located in Saanich Inlet, BC. The instruments were mounted on a surface buoy looking downward in 150 metres water depth for a period of 10 days. The two instruments were configured to operate with similar range and time resolution. The ADCP recorded a 30-ping ensemble every minute in 1 metre range bins. The AWCP4 recorded a 3-ping average every 12 seconds with 0.5 m range resolution. The sampling regions of the two instruments were not exactly co-located, but were close enough to show the same larger scale features. Echograms from the two clearly show the two primary zooplankton populations in the Inlet, one migrating diurnally, and the other remaining at depth. Data from both instruments, when converted to volume backscatter strength are in agreement within the limitations of their approximate calibrations. Examples of these will be shown. The difference in performance between the two instruments appears when longer or more-frequently sampled deployments are considered. With the spatial and temporal resolution used in the Saanich Inlet deployment, the ADCP is limited to a 20-day deployment on a standard battery pack (80 days would be possible if 2 more batteries were added in an external case). The AWCP4, in contrast, would last over 8 months operating with those parameters. Operating the ADCP to achieve high-resolution backscatter data also degrades its performance in measuring current velocity in most cases. The AWCP4 therefore allows greater temporal and spatial resolution over the extended monitoring periods of many months that are one of the primary motivations for using a single-frequency instrument. The AWCP4 has recently been replaced by a new model, the AWCP5, which has increased data storage (up to 16 GBytes vs. 138 Mbytes), greater flexibility in choice of sampling strategies and 16-bit as opposed to 8-bit digitization for greater dynamic range. The AWCP5 offers even greater advantages in time and space resolution and length of operation for acoustically monitoring zooplankton populations.

  • Acoustic measurements of the vocal-tract area function: sensitivity analysis and experiments

    A method used to determine the vocal-tract cross-sectional area function from acoustical measurements at the lips is analyzed. Under the framework described by Sondhi and Gopinath (1971) and implemented by Sondhi and Resnick (1983), a sensitivity analysis of the vocal-tract area function, derived from the impedance or reflectance at the lips is performed. It indicates that, in the ideal case, the area function is not heavily affected by random distortions of the impulse response at the lips. Simulations and real measurements show that the method works relatively well, except for regions behind narrow constrictions. In this case, an excitation pulse with high energy, as well as a fine sampling, proved to be important. The excitation used is a time stretched pulse. It produces an excitation with high energy without the necessity of a high power sound generator device.

  • Identification and Localization of Multi-source Partial Discharges by Acoustic Measurements in Oil-pressboard Insulation System

    Partial discharges (PD) deteriorate insulation of power apparatus and lead to final failure. Early detection and localization of PD can avoid unwanted failure of power apparatus. There are different techniques for PD detection. Acoustic emission technique for partial discharge detection is advantageous for online detection and source location. Normally, acoustic PD detection and location is based on the assumption of a single PD source. But in practice, more than one source of PD is present and they may be active simultaneously in a power apparatus. This paper addresses the identification and localization of two simultaneous PD sources employing acoustic emission technique in oil pressboard insulation system. The PDAE signals from two simultaneous PD sources are analyzed using wavelet analysis with time frequency resolution and Independent Component Analysis for identification and localization.

  • Bioelectric current image reconstruction from magneto-acoustic measurements

    An investigation is conducted of the possibility of reconstructing images of current dipoles in a volume conductor from data obtained by the magnetoacoustic technique. A modified form of the algebraic reconstruction technique (ART) is used. Reconstruction results of simulated data show that it is possible to find the location, relative magnitude, and orientation of the dipoles with reasonable accuracy for simple dipole configurations.<<ETX>>

  • An autonomous underwater vehicle towed array for ocean acoustic measurements and inversions

    A novel experimental method involving an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with a towed hydrophone array has been developed to measure the single path interaction from the surface, bottom and volume of the shallow water waveguide. The system is designed to operate from the low (/spl sim/100 Hz) to the mid frequencies (/spl les/10 kHz) with a directional source. The effects of surface, volume, and bottom scattering on the coherency of direct and direct-reflected signals are difficult to measure and a mobile directional receiver provides an adaptive capability. For example, the quantification of the role micro-bubble layers near the surface and in surface ship wakes plays on the coherency and scattering of sound could be measured with this device. In addition, an AUV with a hydrophone array can be easily and rapidly deployed and because of its mobility can provide area wide characterization. However, AUV radiated noise measurements indicated vehicle noise would limit the ability of hull-mounted or interior hydrophone arrays and thus suggested the use of a low noise towed array. The AUV discussed here is the Remus vehicle, a tested as well as a readily-available tow platform for a small low drag array. To demonstrate the ability of Remus to act as a low noise tow vehicle, radiated noise measurements were made on the vehicle at Dodge Pond acoustic test facility. The vehicle was rotated on a shaft at a depth of 8 meters and calibrated noise levels measured at 13 meters distance. At the maximum rpm of the AUV, the 1/3/sup rd/ octave noise level, when converted to source level by the calibrated transmission factor, was 130 dB re 1/spl mu/Pa at 1 m. This would represent the radiated noise source level for a vehicle moving at 3 knots. A small-diameter (2.8 cm O.D.) fluid-filled hydrophone array has been developed with 6 channels spaced evenly at 0.75 meters, each channel having a receiving sensitivity of -174 dB re 1/spl mu/Pa/V from 100 Hz to 10 kHz. The recording system consisted of three commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) battery powered mini-disc recorders with a 20 kHz band pass, sampling frequency of 44 kHz and a 16 bit analog to digital converter providing storage capability of 90 minutes of raw data. The prototype system was deployed in a "proof-of- concept" test at the Dodge Pond test facility. The vehicle was programmed to navigate along paths that provided straight courses as well as several turns to determine the operational characteristics of the system. Results on capabilities of the vehicle with the towed system are presented including vehicle and array noise, beamforming, and element localization.

  • PD detection and localisation by acoustic measurements in an oil-filled transformer

    A pattern recognition method for localisation of the partial discharge (PD) site in an oil-filled transformer by acoustic measurements is presented. By dividing the transformer into a number of 20/spl times/20/spl times/20 mm/sup 3/ sub-modules, the PD site is localised by comparing the spatial distance of each sub-module to the acoustic sensors. The numerical cases indicate that the proposed method is general and practical, while avoiding some drawbacks in current algorithms. Moreover, the method improves the accuracy of localisation substantially when compared with the conventional localisation method.
