Determination of sound power level by using a microphone array and conventional methods
Treść / Zawartość
Sound power is measured to make objective comparisons between the same type of products, but also because legislation requires it. To release a new product, it is often compulsory to certify it according to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards, and also with national and local regulations. Determining of sound power is not a straightforward process. Sound power can be determined through the measurement of sound pressure (series 3740 methods) or sound intensity (series 9614 methods). Selecting one of the above methods depends on the purpose of the test, as well as the available equipment, desired grade of accuracy, background noise level or the test environment. Nowadays the additional methods, such as microphone arrays are used to located of the noise source and determined of pressure sound level. But the results obtained with acoustic cameras cannot be, for now, used for legislative purposes (are not ISO compliant). In this work the differences in the determination of sound power level by using conventional ISO methods and microphone arrays are determined. The system composed of a loudspeaker and a fan were used as a sound source of the noise. Sound power levels according to ISO 3746 and ISO 9614-1 were determined and were compared with the developed method by using microphone arrays techniques.
