A note on the power potential of tidal currents in channels

Abstract:

This paper presents a set of three simple one-equation formulas that can be used for rapid initial assessment of the tidal power potential of fast moving currents in both large straits and small tidal channels (as may exist close to isolated communities). The three formulas enhance previous published theoretical estimates and are consistent with each other in that any one of them can be used depending on which two of the following three input parameters are known: (i) the variation in water l...
