Abstract

Tidal energy as an alternative clean and renewable energy source has recently aroused much interest among both academia and industry. Floating tidal power generation devices are also under development worldwide. In this paper, hydrodynamics of the catamaran hull of a floating tidal power generation device is investigated using a CFD solver. As an initial step, the tidal turbine is not considered. Motion and force responses of the floating platform subject to regular waves are presented and analysed.
