Effect of free surface deformation on the extractable power of a finite width turbine array

Abstract:

The effect of free surface deformation on the power extracted by a tidal turbine array partially spanning a wide channel is investigated using a theoretical model. Two predominant flow scales are assumed; turbine-scale flow, and array-scale flow, which are analysed as quasi-inviscid open channel flow problems in which conservation of mass, momentum, and energy are considered, and coupled through kinematic and dynamic boundary conditions. Power extraction may be maximised by determining the op...
