Impact of tidal turbine support structures on realizable turbine farm power

Abstract:

A one-dimensional head driven channel flow model is used to investigate the characteristics of tidal stream energy extraction for large tidal farms deployed in tidal channels with specific focus on the limitations to realizable farm power due to turbine support structure drag and constraints on volume flow rate reduction. Support structures are seen to contribute significantly to the overall resistive force in the channel and thus reduce the overall flow rates through the channel leading to l...
