Power available from a depth-averaged simulation of a tidal turbine array

Abstract:

The power available to a tidal stream turbine fence depends on the turbine resistance, the mass flux through the array, as well as the flow speed variation within the array. Depth-averaged simulations are often used to analyse the power available at a site, where the array is modelled as a region of enhanced flow resistance. Without special treatment this method can lead to errors when estimating the power available to the array as the simulated velocity at the turbine plane, and therefore th...
