The effect of bathymetry interaction with waves and sea currents on the loading and thrust of a tidal turbine

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper reports work undertaken to advance analytical methods used to evaluate the influence of bathymetry on wave- current interactions with tidal turbines. The model takes in to account the wave transformation due to a sudden depth change in the sea level. The functions developed provide solutions for wave transformation by changes in bathymetry to find how this change effects the torque and thrust exerted over a tidal turbine. Costal site data for the west coast of the US, from the US DoE, has been used to access the robustness of these analytical methods. The high resolution data sets used have monitored wave, sea and climatic conditions over a period of 8 years.
