Tidal stream turbine power capping in a head-driven tidal channel

Abstract:

An array of ten 1 MW turbines, with a one diameter inter-turbine spacing, is simulated in a hypothetical tidal channel using the depth-averaged flow solver TELEMAC-2D. It has been shown for idealised turbines that mean power extraction from tidal channels can be enhanced by tuning turbine resistance for a given channel. Blade element momentum theory is used to analyse turbine control strategies such as power capping, which can allow turbine operation to better match the dynamics of the underl...
