The effect of blockage on tidal turbine rotor design and performance

Abstract:

The performance-enhancing effects of closely packing tidal turbines in single row arrays (tidal fences) are evaluated in this computational study. Infinitely long tidal fences are simulated with a range of lateral rotor spacings using a blade element momentum method embedded in a Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes solver (RANS-BEM).First, a rotor design tool is applied to determine a hydrodynamically optimal rotor design for each lateral spacing. In the RANS-BEM method, the effect of blockage (t...
